ULISES CARRIÓN, Dancing With You, 1973 [artist’s book]

In the books Ulises Carrión has made, lists are one of his favorite methods to give structure to what is aid and shown; archival order, sequence, the experience of time, etc. In his book “Dancing with You” he has made a kind of ode to someone he likes dancing with. The musical scores on the cover and a list with poem-like descriptions of each classical dance makes the book into joyful combination of rhythm, language and music.
