Prigov’s concrete poems get bigger

Photo: Margarita Chistova One of Dmitri Prigov’s Stikhogrammy (poemographs or versographs) about which I write in A Common Strangeness has been blown up to the size of a multistory apartment building as part of an art project in Belyaevo, an area in Moscow closely associated with the late artist and writer. You can view some great images of the resulting work here. I’ve blogged previously about Prigov’s series of concrete poems here and here.
