DON’T REST, NARRATE (THE EXQUISITE CORPSE)
Starting from writing excersies Daniela Müller unfolded an internet project made with Vika Adutova, Maria Belic, Eva Funk, Araiz Mesanza, Iz Öztat, Gabrielle Paré, and Per Westerlund based on a written version of the Surrealist drawing game, “The Exquisite Corpse”. A participant would write a line; another would respond to it in writing, fold the paper so the first line was concealed, hand the paper to the next participant, and so on. Müller’s project animates the writing and imagery generated in the course of the game. Words, symbols and motifs flicker across the dark screen, bringing together individual thoughts from the eight artists in poetic and playful combinations. This digital publication is in conversation with its parallel printed form—each function separately, but may be supplemented by the other.
