    62 min. video, 2020- 2022 with sound – B&W and color

    Conceived as a collaboration by Chip Lord, Jack Massing and Sean Miller


    The Exquisite Moving Corpse started as a conversation between Chip Lord, Jack Massing, and Sean Miller in 2020. In planning the The Exquisite Moving Corpse decisions were made to trade the methodology from the original Surrealist drawing strategy with video making. Each invited artist made a one-minute video based on the last frame of the previous minute. The three originators curated (root word cura: to care for) the moving corpse by inviting 19 other artists each. Sixty artists in sixty minutes. Some artists produced their one minute video within hours whereas others took weeks to complete their minute. All the work, play, sharing, and caretaking resulted in The Exquisite Moving Corpse, 2022. Two years of collective efforts produced an open-source project within an isolated yet digitally connected creative community of international Artists.

    The Exquisite Corpse was a Surrealist strategy for collective art making, similar to the old parlor game Consequences in which players take turns writing on a piece of paper, in turn folding it to conceal what was previously written. With The Exquisite Corpse the Surrealists applied this methodology to the human body with various body parts being concealed and drawn and folded over by multiple artists to produce a final chance-oriented figurative representation.
