A picture story of Jake Chapman and the making of a mass exquisite corpse for the Museums at Night festival at the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings.
The public arrive. It all started with Jake and Dino’s playing a game together. The Exquisite Corpse. Inspired by the Surrealists. An edition in b/w and loaned to the Jerwood for the event. On the floor for the night a pile of huge paper ready for the audience to play their own game. Without any encouragement, the energy levels rise and the paper gets taken. Each group take a fold then turns over and passes it on. The room is buzzing. Many pencils need sharpening. The final fold and the drawing is over. Time for the judging. Jake and the curator make a shortlist. The finalists are laid out on the floor. A winner is chosen. The lucky crew are on a promise of a studio visit and a night out with the brothers. Thank you Jake, the Jerwood and Culture24.
Thank you and goodnight.
