When Krista Madsen and Jeff White began making pairs of exquisite corpses last summer, they didn’t anticipate that they’d be organizing a Valentine’s Day exhibition of similar collaborations by over 50 couples from around the country. Madsen and White found the “corpsing” process to be not only a great way of spending time together, of exercising creativity and of documenting their experiences together, but also as a valuable method of communication. Their title, “born out of a discussion on lollipop psychology, reflects the sweetly monstrous results of the game and the messy, painful, sensual drama that love can be. We’re all familiar with the terms `love is for suckers’ and `love bites’ but thankfully, we wholeheartedly play on.”
A section of wall will be available for visitors to post their own Suckers and Biters anytime before closing on March 5th. Local creative couple TinVeil will perform their atmospheric music on opening night and lollipops with woodcut print covers by JW and KM will be sold for $6 to support this ongoing project.
