SybinQ Art Projects is pleased to present GUEST CURATORS, where The Bay Window Project becomes the hosting place to promote outstanding curatorial projects, in the spirit of a constant dialogue among curators and artists on an international level.
Cadavre Exquis VIDEO / Cadáver Exquisito VIDEO / Cadavere eccellente VIDEO is a project conceived by Project Room Arte Actual / FLACSO and coordinated by María Rosa Jijon (Quito), Federica La Paglia (Rome) and Alexis Moreano (Paris).
Characterised by a recreational spirit either in its construction and its presentation to the public, CADAVRE EXQUIS VIDEO is the result of an open call to which followed the participation of 62 artists from Ecuador, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Argentina, Messico and Chile. The participants were invited to send a short video each, all then edited together in the order of arrival, to create something different, apparently with no sense or common thread but that of automatism and chance. The video is inspired by the parlor game “Consequences”, in which players wrote in turn on a sheet of paper, folded it to conceal part of the writing, and then passed it to the next player for another contribution, which would be totally disconnected from the rest. The Surrealists further developed these aspects of random composition, intuition and probability, arguing that creation should be based on collective, open dialogue.
After the success of the screenings in Quito (Ecuador) and Rome, the video is now traveling to London, becoming the Bay Window’s first group show.
