Concrete poetry of Carl Andre

Sculptures of Carl Andre first were seen in public on the exhibition «Shape and Structure» in 1965, and his fist personal show was held five years later. Before Carl Andre became famous as a sculptor he worked as a guard on Pennsylvania Railroad. In this very time from 1960 to 1964 he began writing concrete poetry.

I’ve found some of his concrete experiences and chosen pics of Andre’s minimalistic sculptures. By the chance both were in same amounts and moreover the structure of concrete poems repeats the sculptural silhouette. Or the other way round.
