Dom Sylvester Houédard: Typestracts
An exhibition in London showcasing the work of Dom Sylvester Houédard (1924 – 1992), a Benedictine monk who became a cult figure of counter-culture sixties London. Known simply as dsh, he was a pioneer of Concrete Poetry (typewriter art), wrote extensively on new spiritual approaches to art and was an authority on the Beat movement. His abstract visual poems, known as ‘Typestracts’, were A4 in size and typed on an Olivetti Lettera 22.
