I'm pleased to be exhibiting a travelling sound installation for the next Late event at the V&A. The event's theme is based upon the Alexander McQueen exhibition, Spectacle of the Species, and I'm collaborating with a fashion designer Quoi Alexander.
The sound work will consist of a cricket soundscape, worn by the models and carries through the galleries.
Inspired by iPod culture for mobile music, this work explores an earlier form of sonic body adornment - a fashion trend from 1000years ago of concealing crickets in clothing for their song.
March’s Friday Late celebrates the V&A’s Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition.
18.30 - 22.00 | #FridayLate
From cocoons in gestation to birds in flight, the natural world was fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s most prominent source of inspiration. Join us for an evening of skeletal armoury, skins, scales and crystals as we explore the natural elements that were intrinsic to McQueen’s vision.
