Exquisite Corpse: 30 August -4 September 2011

Exquisite Corpse: 30 August -4 September 2011

OPENING: 5.30 Monday 29 August.

OPEN: 11.00am - 6.00pm Tuesday - Saturday, 11.00am - 3.00pm Sunday.

Exquisite Corpse is a photo / graphic exhibition by four Wellington designers: Liane McGee, Kate Arnott and Tessa Gourley of Fortyfive Design and Andrew McGee of Teaspoon Films. Each designer has collected images in response to the others’ photographic contribution, forming a sequential collaboration of four distinct perspectives. Out of this creative process, a united body of work has emerged – Exquisite Corpse.

The inspiration for this approach comes from the Surrealists’ parlour game, a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled, with each collaborator adding to the composition in sequence, by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed. The name is derived from a phrase that resulted when Surrealists first played the game, “La cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau.” (The exquisite corpse will drink the new wine.”)

Come and experience a collection of vibrant imagery, surprising connections and exquisite discoveries – we look forward to seeing you there!
