In the context of the neo-avant-garde literary, this paper explores parts of two works of Juan Luis Martinez, La Nueva Novela and La Poesía Chilena, where the author incorporates objects in the textual fabric, giving birth to a new technique, the objectualism. This technique, together with the pictograph and collage became characteristics of this movement in chilean literary. The objectualism represents a new way of understanding the text, in whose body the words has been displaced by a corporeal sign with tangible significant. The object in the textual fabric enhances the expressive and interpretive possibilities of the literary signs, which results in what today we know as object-work.
