The Exquisite Corpus

  • 18'
  • Austria
  • 2015
After a treacherously calm prelude, Tscherkassky tears the integrity of naked bodies to shreds and focuses our voyeuristic look entirely on the medium itself. The ironic reference to the cadavre exquis, a surrealist poetic technique, also implies a statement about the death of analogue film, with its typical trucages in positive and negative.
