In 1972, Ulises Carrión produced his first artist's book "SONNET(S)" with 44 variations -producd by typewriter- of a sonnet by Dante Gabriel Rosetti.
In 2009 Michalis Pichler by using a computer, probably word or open office, created 44 new variations and published a book titled "SOME MORE SONNET(S)". - On the last page of this book announced a multitude of OTHER SONNET(S), mostly imaginary . The show at PrintRoom, Rotterdam sees the realization of "TEN OHP SONNETS" as well as one out of "SEVEN ADVERTISED SONNETS".
A selection of other bookworks by Ulises Carrión and Michalis Pichler will be on display.
