Charles Pennequin & Pakito Bolino

Born in 1965 in Cambrai (North of France). Excellent reader of his own text, he plies the hard and queer policeman profession and often appears as one of the best new generation poet, or at least, one of the most appealing. He is also a generous poet, able to show a real and unusual interest in books written by others, seniors or colleagues.

Charles Pennequin has been « discovered » by Christian Prigent as a writer who led him through his passionate readings. The Pennequin’s poetry is « essentially silly » (as Baudelaire told about great poetry), with amazing lector spirit’s impregnation strength and image disrupt as current circulation’s sentences.

Publishing in numerous magazines. Performances and lives all over France and a bit outside. Videos and drawings hastily made. Blogs writing. Improvisations with dictaphone, microphone, in his car or during train travel. Few cries along railways. Small songs in the books. Public poems dilapidated. Writing on walls. Charles Pennequin is alive since he was born.
