Cadavre exquis: finish the drawing of Jameszoo and Philip Akkerman

15 Nov – 29 Jan 2023   /   Tentoonstelling@Nest

Did you receive the invitation of upcoming exhibition ‘Telephone’? Download the invitation here. It is a cadavre exquis and you can finish it at home!

Cadavre exquis is similar to the old parlour game consequences – in which players write in turn on a sheet of paper, fold to conceal what they have written, and pass it on to the next player – but adapted so that parts of the body are drawn instead. It was invented in 1925 in Paris by the surrealists Yves Tanguy, Jacques Prévert, André Breton and Marcel Duchamp. The name ‘cadavre exquis’ was derived from a phrase that resulted when they first played the game, ‘le cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau’ (‘the exquisite corpse will drink the new wine’).

Now, it’s your turn! Complete the drawing by Jameszoo and Philip Akkerman, send a picture to or tag us via social media and win a personalised copy of the new LP ‘Blind’ for which Akkerman made the cover. Would you rather put the threefold back in the post? Our address is De Constant Rebecqueplein 20b, 2518 RA The Hague.
