ECG 2018 Version 2.2 unveiling is a unique Artistic Blind Collaboration
Exquisite Corpse is a game registered in the Library of Congress for almost 100 years. Throughout the years it has been played by many, never like this version before.
Every year is an entirely new game, even when some of the participants have previously played. We are all in constant change. Each year every piece created is a unique work of art that is part of the energetic flow. It is a unique blind collaboration and a very individualized experience, all at once.
The game starts with the selection of the artists. Once the artist has accepted to play, they become part of a three-person (head, torso, legs) team and sworn to secrecy. One of the games main objectives is to bring the artists out of their comfort zone. Have them be inspired to create a work of “Thought Provoking Art “JUST FOR FUN. They become 1/3 of a work of art.
All artist invited are VERY talented. That is what makes it so fun. They are all on the same frequency. The artist is given very little clues. They know what part of the corpse they are going to create and the medium/category. The artist role is to be inspired & motivated by the other incredible talent. Play the game and be as creative & inspired as possible “Just For Fun”. That is where Phase 2 starts.
Each artist has 17 days to complete their work of art. The gamekeeper is the only person that knows who is paired with who. The pairing is done before the game is launched in a unique serendipity way. Once paired changes cannot be made. The pieces won’t fit otherwise. Maintaining Secrecy is the KEY! The game culminates with an unveiling and that is when Artists & Guest get to see the artwork come together for the first time.
The ultimate objective is to see the cohesiveness through the pieces. When like-minded people get together “Magic Does Happen”. In this case, everyone comes together for creative FUN and it shines through the Artwork.
The event is Free for Members of the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Arts and $5.00 for guest.
