Exquisite monster

East Perth Power Station

Exquisite Corpse is an old parlour game which was at one time reinvented by the Surrealists and last Sunday taken to new heights by an intrepid few on Artist Safari. Our version saw the visage of the old power station in East Perth take an interesting twist. Or two.


The basic premise of the game is that each player takes a turn at drawing a collaborative monster. The paper is then folded to hide the effort before passing it along to the next person. All that is showing is a clue at the edge of the page to allow the next part to be added. See Wikipedia for a more eloquent insight.

Our effort saw nine sheets of paper circuit between three players. Judge for yourself how much fun we had…
