editor’s letter

At the time of sending this issue to print, there’s an all-consuming ‘C’ word being thrown around the streets that has me distracted from getting this letter finished and delivered on time. I can be an excellent procrastinator at the best of times – even if I do say so myself – so the level of brain power required to stay abreast of all that’s involved with said word has kept me from putting fingers *applies hand sanitiser* to keyboard for even longer than usual. Ah, coronavirus. You’re making everyday life very difficult. And really upping my screen time, according to my iPhone alerts. Back to the situation at hand. Like many of you, the Belle team is in limbo. Will we stay at our desks in our office tower in…

DEVISED BY the surrealists in 1925, cadavre exquis (exquisite corpse) is a French parlour game in which words and images are assembled collectively, with one player sketching a part of the body before passing it to the next player to complete. A process of collaborative invention that invites wildly unexpected results, the game seems a perfect metaphor for the practice of industrial designer Adam Goodrum and master of straw marquetry Arthur Seigneur, who recently unveiled the latest fruits of their creative partnership under the moniker A&A. “I came up with the shape and pattern of these pieces and gave them to Arthur to finish,” says Adam of the ‘Exquisite Corpse’ series, a trio of functional art objects etched with complex, Escher-like geometric patterns and exhibited at Tolarno Galleries during this year’s…
