« La beauté sera convulsive ou ne sera pas ».
« Beauty will be convulsive or not at all ». Nadja/André Breton
Exquisite corpse, also known as exquisite cadaver (from the original French term cadavre exquis) or rotating corpse, is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled.
It is this methodology which has been the starting point for a multi- screen film installation, conceived by Jerry Stafford and directed by renown photographer and director Sølve Sundsbø.
The film, commissioned by W magazine and Proctor and Gamble and produced by Psycho explores the idea of BEAUTY as a constantly shifting, constantly changing force. An idea of transformation and metamorphosis within a single body.
The installation premiered at The Armory in New York on February 14th with music composed by James Lavelle.
