Exquisite Mama Project

A making game in the style of the Surrealist Exquisite Corps. 

 

Project Intention

Increase positive visibility/ support of mother-makers. 

Explore creative potential of collaboration and play-based making experiments. 

Expand ritualized/ habitual making practice in contemporary life. 

Project Format:

A mail-based collaboration with three artists. Objects will be created in three steps, with each artist starting an object, mailing the object to the next artist to continue and finally mailing to the last artist to complete.  The format mirrors the exquisite corps drawing game, but does not consider head/body/feet, rather begin/ add/ resolve. The three makers all work in fibers/ soft sculpture, have an interest in the talismanic properties of art objects and see motherhood as generative to creative practice.
