SHOWSTUDIO/NICK KNIGHT//VEUVE CLICQUOT WIDOW SERIES
31st October 2015 admin

Happy Halloween! I’m not around for all the dressing up this year (I am in Helsinki though!) but I did go to the Veuve Clicquot Widow Series at the old CSM building in Holborn. It was Nick Knight/Show Studio taking over the space for 1 night only for a full immersive Halloween experience. It was absolutely incredible, and if you didn’t get to go, you definitely missed out. I’m a bit silly and didn’t take my proper camera, so for the most part you’ll just have to imagine the room with people in crazy head to toe costumes by Gareth Pugh (which were amazing) dancing on podiums, the creepy characters dressed up at every turn, and the truly phenomenal dance performance (again, a bit silly I don’t have his name with me here but I am going to update it when I’m back in London). Absolutely amazing and it just went on and on. I loved it and wished I could have stayed longer than the 2 hour slot!

Anyway, here’s some pics of things I got on my phone, first up, stunning taxidermy/floral sculptures by Rose Robson.


  
This sculpture that made me look like I was in a Nick Knight photo shoot.

The amazing ceiling that looked like any minute batman might smash through.

      Yeah she’s incredible! She was doing taxidermy (is that how you say it? ‘Doing taxidermy’? Taxidermying? Anyway..) right there all night, it was completely fascinating. Beautiful work!

        Nothing better than watching any artist in the process of creating! Hah, I guess I’m not the only one who struggles with how to say that. I believe I made up a word when I say Taxiing. It’s a weird one

          Taxiing – that also works, although reminds me of a plane taxiing on the runway! I think I probably should have asked her what the official verb was!
