The Tapestry of M . A . // Iconographic Exquisite Corpse // 2021 - . . .
The Tapestry of M.A.
is an Iconographic Exquisite Corpse,
a participative and collaborative project using photographic archives.
Every willing participant
who offers an archival image to the Tapestry
will have to agree for his/her image to enter the database and by so
inject their personal memory into the collective memory.
I created a background of photographic archives that I constantly feeds,
a database named [MArchives Collection]
which I'm currently building into an online platform.
The Tapestry of M.A. is an ongoing project,
its archives will be available soon for viewing under Memoribilia.

Def . Exquisite Corpse
Exquisite Corpse, also known as
(from the original French
term cadavre exquis),
is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled.
Each collaborator adds to a composition
in sequence, either by following a rule or by being only allowed to see
the end (a fragment) of what the previous person contributed.
The game gained popularity in artistic circles during the 1920s when it was adopted as a technique by artists of the Surrealist movement « DADA » to generate collaborative compositions.
