Exquisite Corpse Workshop with Pamela Irving – NEW!
In this workshop join Pamela Irving in a brief introduction to working intuitively with materials! It’s the perfect way to loosen up your practice, team build or take your work in a different direction.
Exquisite corpse, also known as exquisite cadaver, inspired by a Surrealist parlor game, is a method 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. You may have played the game in junior school with paper? Participants play by taking turns drawing sections of a body on a sheet of paper, folded to hide each individual contribution. The first player adds a head—then, without knowing what that head looks like, the next artist adds a torso, and so on. In this way, a strange, comical, often grotesque creature is born.
In this workshop you will contribute to three mosaics by way of quickly making a head, body and limbs. The end results are often surprising, amusing and intuitive. Each participant gets to take home a work which has been contributed on by two other people.
All materials included. No prerequisite.
