DEAF Space
April 27 - May 19 2012
The launch of the first edition of Sentenced Zine, based on a game of Exquisite Corpse played by the artists David Wickens and Coco Meacham, steps away from literal illustrative approaches to story telling. The game, following no set protagonist or narrative, creates a random set of sentences that can be read individually while collectively creating an undulating yet complete story. The artists, in response to the sentences have reinterpreted the words through their use of subject matter, symbolism, medium and composition. Creating unique worlds that capture both what has been written as well as what has been left unsaid. Viewers are also invited to participate in a game of Exquisite Corpse, which will last the entire exhibition, and form the basis of future editions of the zine.
