A video project/game initiated by Chip Lord, Jack Massing & Sean Miller @ the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery
The original Surrealist “exquisite corpse” was a café parlor game invented in 1925 by André Breton, Yves Tanguy, Jacques Prévert and Marcel Duhamel in Paris.

FORT MYERS, FLA.- Florida Southwestern State College is presenting “The Exquisite Moving Corpse” a video installation featuring more than sixty internationally-renown artists at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery. Each making one-minute “movies” in response to a still from the previous artist’s digital short, this collective art film includes video segments by Chip Lord, Jack Massing, Sean Miller, Nina Katchadourian, Kristin Lucas, William Wegman, Tony Oursler, Mel Chin, Muntadas, Hasan Elahi, Mark Dion and many others. “The Exquisite Moving Corpse” installation temporarily transforms the exhibit space into a screening room with this feature length moving-picture - inspired by a nearly century-old Surrealist artists’ pastime/amusement – looping continually during regular Gallery hours from August 22nd through December 10, 2022.

The original Surrealist “exquisite corpse” was a café parlor game invented in 1925 by André Breton, Yves Tanguy, Jacques Prévert and Marcel Duchamp in Paris. The French name “cadavre exquis” was derived from the phrase that resulted when first played, “le cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau” (“the exquisite corpse will drink the new wine”). Adapted from a “word game” with players adding text to a sheet of paper that was then folded to conceal additions before being passed to the next contributor, the Surrealists soon began to apply this practice to drawings of the human figure. Taking turns in sketching – head, torso, legs and feet – independently, fantastic “creatures” were often revealed as the corpse was unfolded.

According to the artist organizers, “The Exquisite Moving Corpse” was created and compiled over a two-year period beginning in March 2020. Most of the footage was shot, shared and edited while participants worked in pandemic-related quarantine. Chip Lord, Jack Massing and Sean Miller initiated the game – making the first three minutes - then handed it off to an evolving list of invited collaborators in what they describe as an artist chain letter. And, just following a recent premiere installation at the Archivio Emily Harvey art space (curated by Bob Rauschenberg Gallery director Jade Dellinger) during la Biennale in Venice, Italy last month, FSW is delighted to be among the first U.S. venues to unveil and present “The Exquisite Moving Corpse” in a gallery setting.
