"Exquisite Corpse" 2016 - 19

"Exquisite Corpse" series is based on the Surrealist Parlor game of the 1920's. In the game, a paper is folded into three sections. On it a Head, a  torso, and legs are draw by three indivials, each not seeing what the other has contributed.This creates a drwing of a body, an "exquisite corpse".
In this series I am using found materials; 19th century frames, parian ware sculptures, fabrics, and bronzes, to add to my work. My task is to assemble these "received" materials and contribute to make it into a new work.
