Through the notion of games in human culture, “The Playground” brings together Alexandra Konopleva and Chiara Muracciole, two visual artists who graduated from Istituto Marangoni Firenze and accepted the curatorial challenge of playing the Surrealist game cadavre exquis, updating its possibilities using 3D digital sculptures as the main medium.
The idea of using 3D images stemmed from the belief that images are now once again produced by skilled craftsmen, who manipulate reality using graphics and video-editing software.
The Playground has simple rules and has no losers or winners. In contrast, the title highlights the idea that the artists playing the game are sharing the same space, the same roles, and the same experience. Also known as exquisite corpse, Cadavre exquis is a method by which words or images are assembled collectively by a group of people.
