Collaborative Corpse, 2018
projected drawings
135 Victoria Street

Collaborative Drawing Night > Sunday, October 14, 8:00 pm

Collaborative Corpse is a series of projected exquisite corpse drawings on the windows of the Office of Surrealist Investigations. Office of Surrealist Investigations is a collaborative art studio taking the form of a film noir private investigator’s office within which participants are invited to collaborate in Surrealist activities.

For this project, multiple participants will work simultaneously to create drawings inspired by the Surrealist drawing game Exquisite Corpse. Participants engage in a visual correspondence forming a collaborative drawing that builds off of each participant’s ideas and automatic mark-making. The Office of Surrealist Investigations will host a public drawing night where visitors can contribute to live projected drawings. The drawings will be projected in the windows each evening throughout the week of Luminocity.
