- MTV SPECIAL PROJECTSMy first project with MTV was as a guest editor for the MTV Swatch Playground website. The project included writing blogs for the site, taking part in a documentary and traveling to LA to meet Juliette Lewis for the Talk@ series. The project culminated in me designing part of the EMA'S after party as a BATTYBASS venue in Belfast, where I created a mutant discoteque on a planet far far away. MTV asked me to create a twisted vision of a cafeteria for a Beviacom event, Psyhcadelic mannequin tea l
- emg initiative.EMG is an ethical, creative design initiative, pioneering inventive sustainability in the higher end of the creative cultural market. Raising awareness and funds for a selection of charities and causes, through the production and sale of exclusive and unique designs at pop up boutiques and exhibitions. Projects will run, collaborating with a range of creatives, addressing different areas but with a focus on humanitarian issues, like those caused by the fashion and textile industries and the global challenges around LGBT and gender equality. Designers from different disciplines will be invited to contribute to the projects, to foster discussion, creative practice and communication on larger issues that result from a demanding consumerist culture. Our practice often leaves us with quantities of left over materials, beautifully embroidered silks, chiffons and printed fabric. The cost of production and purchase of these materials is high, not only financially but also in other aspects when it comes to how and where they are produced. The initiative seeks to utilise these remnants and aims to see none of these fine materials go to waste. Reassigning them to beautiful products, to raise funds and awareness for causes such as children in the work force, child abuse, women’s rights, and access to justice and the fatal health and safety issues within production factories.
- Creatures from the Kaleidoscope at The Londonewcastle SpaceCREATURES FROM THE KALEIDOSCOPE - SOLO EXHIBITION BY ALEX NOBLE CURATED BY: Ryan Lanji DATES: August 30th - Sept 8th 2013 12-6pm Daily ADMISSION: Free PRIVATE VIEW: August 30th, 2013 6pm - 10pm (Strictly Invite Only) EXHIBITION RUN: Londonewcastle Project Space, 28 Redchurch Street, E2 7DP. August 30th - Sept 8th 2013 10-6pm Daily From visionary artist Alex Noble comes his first solo exhibition; Creatures from the Kaleidoscope. The highly anticipated art and fashion-fused exhibition will display Noble’s visceral aesthetic as he unveils an immersive mixed media landscape taking the spectator deeper into the visual forms of his world. The exhibition began when Noble collaborated with three female musicians and performers who acted as muses for his Mannequink project, shot by photographer Joe McGorty. The results have since taken on a three-dimensional form and will act as a monochromatic introduction to the exhibition. The Kaleidoscopic journey will then take heed from its idea and transgress into a spectrum of color, shape and female form; culminating into a sensory ‘exit’. The physicality of the exhibition will take the form of large mixed media works, sculpture, installation, set pieces, film, performance and photography. Exploring pattern, colour and their relationship through refracted and carefully thought out composition, Noble’s works become iconographic in their immense entirety. Taking inspiration from tropes of spirituality, science fiction, art deco and consumerism the works are reminiscent of oversized stain glass windows, large mosaics and rich motifs similar to religious Hindu imagery. The female forms are then paired with these patterns and shapes then abstracted through habitats and objects, producing works ambiguous to a specific past or future; like thresholds into parallel realities. The film Colour Therapy shot by Joost Vanderbrug will also greet the spectators in the exhibition. An abstract performance film about the power of colour and the life it breathes into the subjects of the film. Noble’s acclaimed illustration, sets and fashion design will also be on display, allowing the spectator to better understand his intersections between fashion and contemporary art through this seminal show.
