(Belgium, poesia visiva)
Luc Fierens is a collagist and visual poet provocateur whose work emerged out of Poesia Visiva, Mail-Art and Fluxist circles. Fierens’ diverse practice focuses on language/image as a raw material and the exploration of alternative forms of distribution and communication. As such, he promoted a transnational dialogue prior to the inception of the internet with his mail art projects (Social-Art, Cornucopiae…) and publications (Postfluxpostbooklets) from 1984. Now he continues his research with artists from his “social architecture” with whom he exchanges, forwards, and directs art, and collaborative projects through email, and with whom he organizes meetings, performances, publications and exhibitions. His publications and works can be found in the R&M Sackner Archive (Miami, Artpool-Budapest), libraries (MoMa Library, Rare Books collection Univ. of Buffalo), museums (MaRT, Trento e Rovereto – Italy) and several private collections.
