WEEKENDER &COLLABORATE - EXQUISITE CORPSE
1 JULY - 31 JULY 2014
For &Collaborate, Foam curator Kim Knoppers invites various art collectives for one month to Felix &Foam, and gives them the opportunity to present themselves with a theme of their choice. In the first half of the month, the space at Felix &Foam functions as a workplace. In the second half the collective will present their work. This way the audience is able to witness the work in progress and get an insight into contemporary developments in photography.
In the month of July it’s Weekender's turn to take part in &Collaborate. The title of their exhibition is 'Exquisite Corpse'.
“Exquisite corpse, also known as exquisite cadaver (from the original French term cadavre exquis), is a method used by surrealist artists at the start of the 20th century by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule or by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed.”
This time three photographers and one duo will take part in this surrealistic game. They all start building their part on their own installation. Then following, another photographer will continue building on it without seeing the start the first photographer made, and so on - until the installation is made out of four parts, all made by different hands.
In this game there is only one rule:
You can not see the work of the other collaborators.
Participating photographers are:
At the moment Jaap works on a random track of the album Mumps etc. from WHY? Visit his website and look 5 of the 15 minutes, then you know what he makes..
Every day Noël tries really hard not to grow up;
unfortunately he doesn’t always succeed.
Despite their productivity, the duo remains remarkably realistic; where they once pursued world dominance, they now realize it is more feasible to strive for world peace.
Simon used to cook monochrome meals. He thought that if the colours of the ingredient matched the resulting meal would have to taste good!
Work in progress is to be seen from the 1st of July until the 17th of July.
The vernissage of the exhibition is on the 18th of July from 6PM till 9PM.
The exhibition showing the result will be open until the end of the month.
