Exhibition Excuisite Corpse

The title of the exhibition refers to the surrealist technique utilized to craft a collective collage of words or images. This game of sorts is played by several people, each of whom writes/draws a phrase/image on a sheet of paper, folds the paper to conceal it, and passes it on to the next player for a further contribution. End result is a sequence of loosely connected words/images, a surprising mishmash of individual visions forming a composition verging on the bizarre.

The idea was to take this technique and employ it in the context of contemporary illustration. Thirteen artists were invited to make their contributions to the project that would be some kind of cross-fertilization in design - one big illustration orgy.

It took over three months before all individual works were gathered in one place and assembled into a 13-meter long and 2-meter high wall graphic.
