For a few weeks now, fans and in-the-know music lovers have been taking guesses at what FKA twigs might be up to since the singer dropped a very mysterious casting call on her social media channels. The ad simply read "Looking for performers of all genres to audition for a project I'm making in London this October. No talent or style is too extreme. All performers must be based or be able to work in the UK."
Well, overnight, the project was revealed to be none other than a very cool Halloween-themed art exhibition, which is part of the very cool The Veuve Clicquot Widow Series, which is an annual event that takes place in London which is a "Celebration of creative and cultural prowess" and is curated by photographer Nick Knight.
Twigs' show, "Rooms" is set to open on October and will be an "immersive and tactile" evening that aims to take the audience on a "journey of self-analysis." The press release also says it will include "spiritual exploration" and "fear and enlightenment through multiple mediums."
In her artist's statement that accompanied the media alert, twigs said, "There aren't always opportunities to make your wildest creative ideas a reality. 'Rooms' is one of my most ambitious projects to date so I'm very excited to be bringing it to life for The Veuve Clicquot Widow Series." Which, considering the multi-disciplinary artist's body of work to-date, is a huge.
Those in London will be able to check out the exhibition from October 27-28. Head to the official site for more details.
