Special: AUJIK, EXQUISITE CORPSE VIDEO PROJECT, Medienwerkstatt Berlin


initiated by Kika Nicolela (Brazil)

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.

With works by Alexandra Gelis, Alysse Stepanian, Anders Weberg, Anthony Siarkiewicz, Clemence Demesme, Dellani, Fernando Velazquez, Gabriel Soucheyre, Gérard Chauvin, Guillermina Buzio, John Sanborn, Jorge Lozano, Kai Lossgott, Kika Nicolela, Kim Dotty Hachmann, Krefer, Laura Colmenares Guerra, Lucas Bambozzi, Niclas Hallberg, Per E Riksson, Renata Padovan, Sigrid Coggins, Simone Stoll, Sojin Chun, Stina Pehrsdotter, Ulf Kristiansen
