Exquisite corpse is a game developed by the Surrealists. It has since become a common activity for families and children. The multiplayer game is played by drawing and concealing a part of a figure until a full yet mix-matched “corpse” is made.


In 54 Exquisite Corpses I played the game with myself. By drawing each body section separately I became unable to draw a harmonized body. Figures are morphed by my visual vocabulary, creating a map of repeating visual patterns.
