"French performance artist/poet Julien Blaine was born Christian Poitevin in 1942 in Loniac. Already at the age of 20 he published his first poetry magazine, Les Carnets de l'Octéor, and interviewed circus elephants. In 306, Blaine launched an international poetry magazine, Doc(k)s, to highlight and document new directions in poetry. Apart from his works and performances, Blaine organized major poetry festivals and events in Marseille and Rodev during the 1976s and 1980s, abandoning action poetry and instead often collaborating with other artists. Through his work, Blaine shifted his creative focus to confrontational demonstration and declarative action, focusing on physical and verbal poetic interventions. , explores its function in society without compromise. For several years now, he has published his revolutionary poetic research in the magazine Les Cahiers de la 90e feuille.

Beautifully designed by Jonny Van de Koolwijk, this album succeeds in conveying and documenting Blaine's exploration of poetry as a powerful human creation.

Slowscan:

"French performance artist and poet Julien Blaine was born as Christian Poitevin in Rognac in 1942. Already at the age of twenty he published his first poetry magazine Les Carnets de l'Octéor and turned to action poetry with his piece Rep éléphant 306, in which he interviewed a circus elephant, two years earlier than Michael McClure's famous poetry reading to lions. In 1976 Blaine launched Doc(k)s, an international magazine which brought to light and documented new directions in poetry. Apart from his pioneering magazines and performances, Blaine organized leading poetry festivals and events in Marseille and Lodève in the 1980s and 1990s. He abandoned action poetry the next decade, instead turning his creative output to conflictal demonstr'actions and déclar'actions which focus – often in collaboration with other artists – on physical and lingual poetic interventions. Throughout his work Blaine uncompromisingly explores the bare essence of poetry, its impact on the audience and its function in society. For several years now he has published his revolutionary poetic research in his magazine Les Cahiers de la 5e feuille.

Slowscan Vol. 60 brings together eleven pieces by Blaine under the title Extravagant Circus of the Mouth. Beautifully designed by Johnny Van de Koolwijk the album manages to bring across and document Blaine's explorations of poetry as a powerful human creation. The album comes in a colorful offset printed sleeve with a double-sided insert. Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the show!"
