The surrealist game ‘exquisite corpse’ is a collaborative one in which a number of participants draw a segment of a whole without seeing anyone else’s contribution. This large-scale photographic installation reimagines the game through the lens of fashion photography, weaving together found photographs, internet images, painting, and drawing to create new mythologies—from fashion photography to twentieth century surrealist illustration.

Soft Bodies challenges historical notions, unveils hidden narratives, and offers a fresh perspective on the beauty and diversity of the human form.
