An audiovisual ‘Exquisite Corpse’ featuring a host of musicians and visual artists.

Last year, Berlin- musician Zoë Mc Pherson and visual artist Alessandra Leone launched a unique project through their SFX platform called XquisiteForce. The project is an audiovisual update of the ‘Exquisite Corpse’, a collaborative assemblage technique developed by the Surrealists in the 1920s.

In the original format, players would write on a of paper on it to the next person, hiding everything that had been written from the next contributor except the very end. In Mc Pherson and Leone’s version, they made an open call for musicians and visual artists to create or video in response to the final fragment of a previous work.

The project, which is ongoing, currently features contributions from 43 artists, including Aho Ssan, Gramrcy, John Object, Katie Gately, KMRU, Ziúr and ZULI. Above, Fact presents a five-minute extract of the piece, which is currently showing as part of CTM Festival 2021’s Cyberia programme, accessible through the virtual club and exhibition space of the name.

XquisiteForce.AV can be experienced inside Cyberia until March 14, 2021. Find more highlights from CTM 2021’s programme in our archive.
