Programme Note:
Extreme Positions Nichol, b.p., (1944-1988)The text below is extracted from bp Nichol’s Extreme Positions, which uses techniques of visual poetry to tell the extended story of a ménage à trios. I was struck by the energy, violence and yearning in the text, which also speaks of familiar Canadian landscapes.Please see the following link for the visual placement used in the work: http://books.google.ca/books?id=wEkk79U5aIwC
