FKA Twigs has been developing a Halloween-inspired art exhibit/multimedia experience for the Veuve Clicquot Widow Series in London. Today, the exhibit opens for a two-day run. On Instagram, the British singer/songwriter shared teaser videos and pictures from the show. There are wraiths smearing each other with goo and body paint to the strains of African folk music; a ghoulish, surreal pile of wooden statues; a lavish, mirror-based performance art display by contortionist Leilani Franco, one of the 12 artists with which twigs collaborated for the show. Check out the teasers below.
The Veuve Cliquot website describes the show as follows:
Based around the zodiac chart, FKA twigs has collaborated with 12 renowned artists, who are each transforming a space to embody the specific atmosphere and character traits of the star signs. Performance art, set design, theatre, costume and dance collide in this original new work written and created by FKA twigs. Told by a cast of 30, twigs’ story follows the journey of a character in search of their spiritual and zodiac home. Giving spectators a 360-degree experience of every emotional trait, dance, song and horror of the human emotion.
