NGV Triennial artist, Olga Chernysheva, loved playing the Surrealist game Exquisite Corpse with her friends as a child. In Russia, where Olga lives, this drawing game is called Nonsense. Olga has a drawing challenge for you inspired by her favourite game – to create your own nonsense creatures.
Beginning with Olga’s picture of her little dog named Hitchcock, create your own set of creatures. Then have fun flipping the tabs in and out to see what kinds of critters you’ve made.
