Poésie, “matière d’images” : les Gigantextes de Michèle Métail

Abstract : Michèle Métail started writing poetry in the early 1970s and was well-received by the OuliPo group and the Sound Poetry movement. Her work is shaped by self-imposed writing constraints as the artist paid close attention to the graphic and acoustic materiality of language. The poems are both visual and musical, Michèle Métail experimenting with the various possibilities offered by the poetic medium. It is particularly the case with « a series of works of larger dimensions » entitled Gigantextes. Those texts are literally made of images, as they promote the visual quality of writing and use the very materiality of the medium to convey meaning; those creations are thus presented in an exhibition, and not merely in a publication. They are definitely not limited to the traditional space of text and book and rely on media, semiotic, institutional transfers this paper offers to analyse.
