Heads up, art fans! Noémie Goudal, the first-ever Artist in Residence at the Corinthia Hotel London, recently unveiled “Harbour,” created while residing at the hotel.
Goudal’s three large-scale pieces of work are on display; and the final piece is called “Harbour” in reference to the hotel’s waterfront location.
The exhibition will be open to the public until June 9 at the hotel.
Goudal worked through nights and around guests and staff to build her sculptural artworks entitled “Forest,” “Pier,” and “Road.” The residency took her into every part of the hotel and the surrounding environs, and while we hear that she usually creates four to five finished works a year, these three scenes were created during a relatively short space of one month.
For the premiere of her work, Goudal was joined by several prominent figures from the arts: Dan Stevens, an actor currently starring in Downton Abbey; Caroline Rush, CEO British Fashion Council; and Ben Evans, director of the London Design Festival. Also present were artists, collectors, and society figures, from impressionist Ronnie Ancona to retail expert Felicia Brocklebank to philanthropist Ella Krasner.
