Thomas Hall - Exquisite Corpse

The Surrealist art movement of the 1920s took the Victorian parlour game ‘Consequences’ and applied it to generate abstracted images and thus the ‘Exquisite Corpse’ was born. The game has a simple structure. A sheet of paper is folded into 3. The folds are made so as not to reveal what has, and what is being drawn. A false wall or theatrical flat can be used as a background for the participants to have their photographs taken against. Once the footage is captured, the material gets divided into three equal sections. Thomas Hall - Exquisite Corpse. Surrealist Ceramics: Exquisite Cups by Chloe Lee Carson.

As a result, it can be difficult to keep up with all the amazing things Etna employees are working on. However, (being that I’m a huge fan of the horror genre) when I first heard that 2 of our design team gurus, Jimmy apRoberts and Brian Christopher, were working on an art project called Exquisite Corpse, my interest was instantly piqued. As it turns out, Exquisite Corpse isn’t as macabre as it sounds. Instead, this playful artistic technique was adapted from a parlor game during the 1920s surrealist movement in Paris. Essentially, Exquisite Corpse is a collaborative art collage. “This is a very interesting collaborative process in that we’re not necessarily working together,” said apRoberts.
