The Head of San Gennaro Collage T-Shirt
During lockdown last year I began playing with collages in Photoshop. This one includes photos I took of paintings as well as some painting from our inspiration folders. Jusepe de Ribera’s Head of San Gennaro is a painting I had stumbled upon during one of my many dives down the tumblr rabbit holes. This saint and the rituals of liquefaction associated plus the fact his head and body as relics were held in separate places are reason enough. But, I do have some trauma having lived in the lower east side where the feast in his name takes over and prevents you from doing anything on time for at least a week every September.
We have always been fascinated by the beauty of exquisite corpses. This simple idea always results in the oddest creatures no matter who you play with. Created sometime around 1918(probably way before that) and championed by André Breton and the surrealists as a game of sorts, they are referenced in the works of William S. Burroughs and there is even a song by Bauhaus titled Exquisite Corpse. With each T-shirt we slammed two or more ideas together at random to create a concert T-shirt of our surrealist dreams.
