This show is a collaboration of artist friends invited to play a variation of the parlour drawing game “Exquisite Corpse.” Participants were provided with some basic instructions for constructing 3-dimensional creature body parts. Artists across Canada & USA worked in isolation of each other, with only the promise of a return body attached to the heads they contributed. The parts were collected and reassembled by Christine Cosby (Swizzle Studio's Textile Division) – who discovered that “circumference” means many things to many artists.
Further Swizzle collaborations are planned for 2008, and all participants are welcome to host their own 3-D Exquisite Corpse sewing bees.
