Homages to previous visual poets:

'a flower' references Mary Ellen Solt; 'homage to Niikuni Seiichi' is a homage to Japanese concrete poet Niikuni Seiichi's 'rain' poem; and 'one among you' is a homage to Gerhard Ruhm's 'The word imprisoned within itself.'
















nick-e melville 

makes found, visual and erasure poems, sometimes departure poems and sometimes art. He is in the process of completing his PhD, The Imperative Commands, a long poem constructed from daily instructional language. 

"My found and erasure work is almost entirely political, erasing the language of contemporary capitalism, to make it say something else entirely."

"I like to engage in paranomastic and ludic games, often with political undercurrents, which a reader is left to puzzle over. Some aspects of my visual work have been inspired by Rachel Whiteread’s negative casts, for instance the casts of the underneath of chairs in Untitled (One Hundred Spaces). So I decided to try this with the space between letters, creating strange shapes from the lexical interstices – ‘alphabits’ can be seen here

Ballpoint pen on paper

The world is no longer able to read the things it writes. I cannot read the unreadable, language obscures its meaning. I too am locked out. Yet, I intuit that there is something there, some meaning? I recently found the following quote by René Magritte when revisiting my sketchbook: 'Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.'"

Ballpoint pen on paper

Digits from an ISBN code are recoded, redefined and embodied into a new structure, giving rise to a dynamic score with a new narrative.

Liliane Lijn

Liliane Lijn’s work covers a large spectrum of interests, from Light and its interaction with diverse new materials to the development of a fresh image for the feminine. Lijn has taken inspiration from incidental details both man-made and natural, mythology and poetry, science and technology. Lijn is interested in the development of language, collaborating across disciplines and making art that is interactive, in which the viewer can actively participate.





Time Forces Split





moonmeme (1992-ongoing)
Liliane Lijn’s real-time computer simulation is a work that demonstrates the interlocking of opposites, Lijn writes the single word SHE across the moon in letters large enough to be seen from earth. Over the course of the lunar monthly cycle, the movements of moon, earth and sun reveal that HE is contained within SHE and SHE emerges from HE.

The Beginning. 1959
Lijn thinks of this drawing as an archetype of her work. In it she created a cosmic map of her own beginning. All the possible creations of Lijn’s unconscious whirling around and separating out from a fiery and as yet condensed central core.

“In 1969 Sinclair visited me in London and showed me Deliria, the notebook he had written while in David Cooper’s psychiatric clinic. In response, I showed him the most recent collages I had made with electronic symbols and he asked me whether I might illustrate Deliria. I agreed, since I thought I could create poignant metaphors for mental disturbances using electronic symbols, relating electrons to neurons. I though of the brain as an electro-chemical system, a kind of organic machine. I found that using these delicate symbols, code for control and use of the flow of electrical energy, opened up a whole imaginative field for me. I called them Neurographs.” (in Visualise: Making Art In Context, 2013)

The 3-meter column is made from used industrial drums that are programmed to rotate at steadily increasing speeds until the words, a tracery of drilled holes, blur into vibrating pulses of light. 

Poemdrums are related to Lijn’s early work with text, Poem Machines (1962). Like the Poem Machines, they spin, disengaging words from the composed text. 

Koan is a Japanese word for a paradoxical riddle given to young Buddhist monks as aids for meditation. Koans are a continuous theme in Lijn’s work. The apparently solid cone is layered with emptiness. What appears empty is, in fact, solid, whereas the apparently solid white cone is an empty shell.

A linguistic intertwining of gender in nine languages.
