Chapman Brothers: Exquisite Corpse


Exquisite Corpse is a series of images by the Chapman Brothers, of which eight are displayed in the mini exhibition in gallery room 6. The series is based on a game, developed by the Surrealists from the traditional game of consequences, called Le Cadavre Exquis, or Exquisite Corpse. The game involves a piece of paper, folded horizontally concertina-fashion. In turn, each member of a group draws a part of a body, without being able to see what others have drawn on the paper. The final result is a body or character of composite parts.
