Richard Saltoun Gallery presents a rare solo exhibition of the British monk Dom Sylvester Houédard, a seminal counter-culture figure of 60s London. The exhibition is the first in London in almost 50 years. Sixties’ America gave the world Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and a roster of other Beat poets. In Britain the Beat movement was altogether more sedate but in typical low-key fashion Britain did produce one truly outstanding counter-culture figure: Dom Sylvester Houédard, Benedictine monk, artist, poet, intellectual and theologian. Dom Sylvester Houédard, (or dsh, as he was known), was a contradictory and elusive figure whose work has been assiduously collected over the years by aficionados of Concrete Poetry and typewriter art. In a rare solo exhibition, Richard Saltoun Gallery has brought together a remarkable collection of his work, curated by Andrew Hunt, that covers the key years between 1963 – 1975.
