Exquisite Corpses in collaboration with: Jaap Scheeren
, Noel Loozen
Weekender invited 4 photographers (including myself) to create an exhibition in Felix & Foam in the summer of 2014.
We decided to play the game of Exquisite Corpse in a 3 Dimensional manner. Meaning that each photographer build 1/4th of each 'sculpture'. A white wooden stick serving as a skeleton upon which we could continue to build. During the opening we revealed the sculptures, discovering them along the audience since each step was covered along the way.
“Exquisite corpse, also known as exquisite cadaver (from the original French term cadavre exquis), is a method used by surrealist artists at the start of the 20th century by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule or by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed.”
