This exhibition is a culmination of an eight month long project including twenty artists. It is inspired by the surrealist game ‘Exquisite Corpse’ and the parlour game ‘Consequences’ and has culminated in an exhibition opening on 5th September with an ‘unveiling’ event on 4th September from 6pm – 8pm (all are welcome) at The Engine Room, Exchange Gallery, Penzance.

The list of artists includes several recent Falmouth alumni – Stacey Guthrie, Christina Romero Cross, Meg O Doherty, Frances Walsh and Camilla Stacey.

Guthrie, who was recipient of the British Women Artist Prize in 2013 said, ‘It quickly became apparent that the ‘game’ was providing a snapshot of what it is to be an artist at this time. Issues of etiquette, authorship and collective ownership of creative outcomes all came to the fore as artists had no guarantee that their work would survive or remain visible. The project was also entirely self-funded (with generous in-kind support from Newlyn & The Exchange) and relied on the resourcefulness of the collaborating artists to reach its conclusion. I’m very excited to see the response of the artists as the final piece is unveiled”.

As well as the unveiling of the final piece of work the exhibition will trace the journey of the canvas and the artists as they have tested what collaboration means to them individually. Through artist writings as they worked on the canvas, to work made in direct response to the experience of experimental collaboration, the exhibition includes sculpture, textiles, print, painting, montage, installation, video, artist books and sound installation.

To accompany the exhibition artist and film maker Rachel Cornish will present a screening and discussion of her collaborative film ‘Exquisite Corpse’ on 12th September at 2pm at Exchange Gallery. Details of the project, the artists and associated events can be found at www.agameofconsequences.co.uk.
