SFX launches an open call addressed to adventurous video and sound artists with the aim to foster synergetic thinking and making.

Xquisite Force is a collaborative AV piece, a record of artistic expressions and conversations. 

‘Exquisite Corpse’ (Cadavre Exquis) is a method/technique invented around the 1920s by the Surrealists by which a collection of words or images are collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed.’

We borrow the surrealists’ semi-blind and sequential method of ‘Exquisite Corpse’, and ask participants to create sound or video in response to the final fragment of previous member’s work.

Each week, a new visual and new sound artist work on a 1 minute contribution.

X.quisite Force will unravel from one contributor to the other and be shared online as it develops. We will also collect an online growing record of all the artists involved.

The selection will be made based on overall consistency within contributions arrangements and audio/visual matches.
