The game is on!
29 people, 145 days and a yet unknown photo series. Invented by surrealist minds, Cadavre Exquis works like “Stille Post”. Same same, but different, since visuals instead of words are being whispered and the order of players is drawn by lot.
Starting point is a photo of the first person. Subsequently, each participant responds to the preceding photo by creating an artwork of his/her own and passing it on to the next in line.
The only rule is 5 days time to take a printable photo, no archive material allowed. Other than that, the technical and aesthetic realization as well as any associations in terms of content are determined individually. That is how the series unfolds and ends with the last person, while no one knows or gets to see anything except for their own stimulus and response. In it for the fun and fame, friends and strangers got together – most of them photographers and some from other creative fields.
How the photo series plays out and whether it adds up to a story, will be revealed to audience and participants at the vernissage for the very first time.
