'Exquisite Corpse' from the original French term cadavre exquis; a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed.
An opening night performance will involve the ‘birthing’ of a life size ‘exquisite corpse.’ The performance will involve the four artists working on a section of a woman’s body (Head, torso, womb, feet) independently for 3 months, only revealing the body in its entirety for the first time as a Live installation on opening night.
The piece aims to explore the spirit of the original surrealists’ motivations to access collective consciousness through collaborative making and highlight both individual and collective practice via an insight into the inner worlds, thoughts and imaginings of these artists during an unprecedented era of global upheaval and change.
