The Exquisite Stone Corpse

A concatenation by 5 UK-based artists

Judy Goldhill, Joanna Hill, Philip Lee, Sophie Loss & John McDowall

preview | Saturday 23 October 6-8pm

Concatenation is a series of interconnected things or events; engaging with an initiative conceived by Sophie Loss in collaboration with Stone Squid Experimental Art Space five artists follow the Exquisite Corpse procedure.

Exquisite Corpse or cadavre exquis was the game of consequences as employed, most notably by the Surrealists, with the intention to engender chance unexpected outcomes in collective works - a word or two, or a small portion of a drawing left visible from the edge of folded paper passed on to, and evolved by the next person in the chain.

The Exquisite Stone Corpse is a group project by artists; Judy Goldhill, Joanna Hill, Philip Lee, Sophie Loss & John McDowall. Each of the five artists, who utilise different mediums in their practice, will sequentially create a work developed from the previous participant's fragment.

The passed-on fragment may be a part of the completed work or an aspect of its developmental process. A specific time interval is allocated to each artist within the project’s six months period, following which, the artists will collaborate with Stone Squideas on the installation.

The installation has a live element which contains adult content.
