Cadavres Exquis


Commissaire : Kika Nicolela

The Exquisite Corpse Video Project (ECVP) is a unique video collaboration among artists from all over the world, inspired by the Surrealist creation method, the “Exquisite Corpse”. Using the semi-blind, sequential method of the surrealists’ game, ECVP participants create video art in response to the final ten seconds of the previous member’s work. Each member is asked to incorporate these seconds into their piece, creating transitions as they please, until everyone’s vision is threaded together into an instigating final “corpse”. Rather than providing a unitary linear narrative, each participant maintains his/her own style, permeated by the diverse cultural backgrounds. Each individual artist interrogates, via different means, a number of genres, tendencies and strategies. Since 2008, this inspiring process of exchange among dozens of artists from around the world illuminates the possibilities of a dynamic collective creation via participatory platforms and new communication technology.

The ECVP was initiated in 2008 by the Brazilian artist Kika Nicolela and it has had 6 volumes released, while a 6th volume is being produced in 2018. Each volume follows different parameters and thematic frames proposed by Nicolela, but always keeping the core of the project: the “exquisite corpse” method of collective creation.

The EXQUISITE CORPSE VIDEO PROJECT vol. 06: Inter- is the most recent volume and also the last one of the project, that completed 10 years in 2018.
