Dom Sylvester Houédard
Benedictine monk and Guernsey-born artist Dom Sylvester Houédard (1924–1992) was an important figure within the countercultural and transnational art movement of the 1960s and early 1970s, especially as regards kinetic and concrete poetry. Numerous typewriter works by Houédard are reproduced here for the first time. We may no longer use an Olivetti Lettera 22 typewriter, as he did, but we all increasingly type rather than hand-write our lives. He would have been delighted by the permutational possibilities offered by the visual shorthand of emojis and hashtags.
