Based on the traditional Exquisite Corpse parlour game, Grass Fires and Can’t Do Tomorrow have boosted this concept to the extreme, making it into 4 lifesize, 3-Dimensional, fully dynamic, interactive art piece.
In the original exquisite cadaver, paper is folded to conceal the last part of a drawing – and new artists add in turn to complete it. This technique was first invented by surrealist artists as a collaborative game to ‘loosen up’ their creativity.
Like an urban Frankenstein’s monster, the Grass Fires corpse will include body parts from a wide variety of artists and styles, with contributions from Luke Day, Pat Rogash, Kentaro Yoshida, Ben Brown, Mike Perry, Tom Gerrard, Jon Kutt, Xavier Davies and Cassie Stephens.
