What Is Pen Incest?
Based on the exquisite corpse tradition, Pen Incest publication takes the shape of an itinerant sketchbook that offers a playful creative platform and collaboration. Curated by the artists Samir Nahas and Dana Nechmad the book is a call to challenge the speed of a conversation by returning to the pace of a postcard, a visual conversation.
How Does It Works?
Each edition is centered around one location. (The first two were in Chicago, then L.A.)
We invite a group of local artists from different fields and backgrounds
Each edition is given a title
Participating artists are given the sketchbook for one week and full freedom to create within its limits whatever they like
After one week, the local facilitator documents the changes and then passes the sketchbook off to the next participant
After all the artists have contributed, the cycle is repeated
The documentation is compiled and made into a publication, along with an exhibition of the original object
