Exquisite Corpse Life Drawing

Exquisite Corpse Life Drawing Performance

ACEM Scientific Conference 2012

Concept and Performance

Role of Performance Artist

 

Performed as a Life Drawing Teacher where emergency medical doctors were asked to draw nude models in poses inspired by neo-classical paintings about grief and compassion. This performance asked doctors to see the human body in a different way than they had been trained to approach it, and to explore issues around vulnerability and empathy/compassion. The exercise also encouraged self-care and a welcome disengagement from the intensity of a scientific conference. Sessions remained booked out and a waiting list throughout.
