Mímica sorda, 1961

Deaf Mime, 1961
Sculpture, 17 x 26 x 49 cm

I believe the poet today must broaden his field, get out of books and put himself forward with all the means provided by society itself and which he can use as unusual vehicles, infusing them with an ethical content which society does not confer on them. That is the starting point of the experiments in visual poetry which, in my opinion, has become the experimental poetry of our time. The search for a new ground between the visual and the semantic.

Joan Brossa, 1987
