With 2 weeks until we open our physical office space, here are four pieces of our exquisite corpse invitation to the opening. Of course, each invitation is unique and contains one piece of an exquisite corpse. Pieces of that corpse have been drawn over 3 or 4 different invites, so your invitation will fit together with other guest’s invitations. As these have been disseminated people are asked whether they’d like an invite with a drawing already on it or a blank containing a few lines overlapped from someone else’s work that they can then complete. Guests are then encouraged to bring their invitation to the office seek each other out to put together the corpse. Present your pieced together corpse at the office and we will present you with artwork from the office. Thank you to all that helped be start the corpses.
office of surrealist investigations
The Office of Surrealist Investigations began out of the surrealist drawing game of exquisite corpse and explorations between the surrealists and the Black Dahlia murder. Drawing queues from Art Spiegelman's narrative corpse, the drawing games have opened up this process further and into other media through collaborations with artists and non-artists resulting in zines and gallery exhibitions.
