Anne-Marie JeanJean was born in 1944; she has published around twenty books and lives in the South of France. She questions writing in and through its material being, in and out of books by giving priority to the fundamental gesture of tracing the line (characteristic of her visual poetry) and by questioning the letter, word and phrase in the breathing of them, in interaction with the material and space : works on paper, card, unframed canvas in all formats and modulable depending on venue. See her collection TardigradéditionS on her website, www.am-jeanjean.com. Her last book, Stèles pour un signe, is based on a few archaic Chinese characters and tells about women’s destiny.
