Exquisite Corpse : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Exquisite Corpse

“unimaginable by one brain alone.” Surrealist poet Simone Khan

Collaboration, freedom, and experimentation lie at the heart of this group drawing project.

15 artists from Dunedin and afar convened to play the Surrealist drawing game Exquisite Corpse. During the game, each artist takes a turn drawing part of a picture, folds the paper to conceal what they have drawn in their assigned section, and passes it on to the next artist. A typical Exquisite Corpse is a freestyle representation of a human (or non-human) body. Potentially erotic, usually grotesque, always startling, the resulting work will not fail to elicit a smile or a gasp.

Participating artists include: Aroha Novak, Kirsten Ferguson, John Z Robinson, Sharon Singer, Emma Chalmers, Anna Perry, Guy Howard Smith, Michael Greaves, Rosa Cameron, Felix Harris, Lynley Opihi, Grant Ramsay, and Nicola Hansby.

A revelatory exhibition, the moment of truth comes when the previously secret compositions are unveiled in all their nonsensical glory. Join us on opening night for the great exposé!
