First published in 1994. Beautifully chaotic brut visual poetry in the transrational Zaumist tradition. Segay's work with Cyrillic characters, blurry smeared ink and rubberstamped images manages to bypass language and cultural barriers in an attempt at a universal visual language.

In Part I of Asymptote blog’s interview with Alex Cigale, Cigale discussed the roots of Russian Futurism, its modern inheritors, and politics at play in Russian poetry. Now he discusses his poetry and translations of Russian neo-futurist poets Serge Segay and Rea Nikonova. Read on for new poems by Segay and Nikonova, and to find out about Cigale’s Kickstarter campaign to finish exoDICKERING: Compositions 1963-1985, translated poetry by Serge Segay.
