FKA twigs Directs Film Celebrating 2022 International Woolmark Prize Finalists

Featuring works by Peter Do, Ahluwalia, RUI and more.

The Woolmark Company has tapped FKA twigs to direct a film celebrating the seven finalists of the 2022 International Woolmark Prize — Ahluwalia, EGONLAB, Jordan Dalah, MMUSOMAXWELL, Peter Do, RUI and Saul Nash.

Titled PLAYSCAPE, the short film, directed by FKA twigs and creative directed by Zak Group with choreography by Juliano Nunes, is produced in partnership with The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum. The clip captures FKA twigs’ collective Avant Graden dancing in a space filled with Noguchi’s sculptures while wearing garments from the finalists’ collections. Additional appearances include Kai-Isaiah Jamal, Princess Julia, Kiddy Smile and more.

FKA twigs commented on the project: “It is an honor to be chosen by the Woolmark Prize to work with such talented designers and to create my first piece of work with Juliano Nunes, innovator of dance for the Avant Garden collective.” Zak Group’s Zak Kyes added: “Our vision for the Woolmark Prize is to create a playground for the next generation of fashion talent to collide with dance, art, music and design. FKA twigs was the perfect collaborator because of her polymathic practice and singular voice. We are indebted to Isamu Noguchi for providing the inspiration to take play seriously.”

Watch PLAYSCAPE above and see the seven finalist designers down below. The final winners will be announced at a live event in London on April 26.
