The Right Knee by Noki

Click here to view film
The right knee by Noki closes the first instalment of our Fashion Body programming, timed to end just as our coverage of the S/S 2011 catwalk shows begins.

We finish this first leg on a slightly sinister and unsettling note - not what you would immediately expect of the knee, but very much in tune with Noki's dark and dangerous aesthetic. His trademark cut-out facial masks - always sported by the man himself - are there, this time sliced and diced over the knee in styles reminiscent of eighties teenagers slashing their jeans to ape poverty. But this is no prosaic frayed denim number: a selection of disfigured, cartoonish motifs culled and reworked from popular culture stare malevolently from the knee-cap itself, rendered as canvas for Noki's anti-fashion film experiments.

The second instalment of films and essays themed around The Fashion Body will begin on 11 October 2010.

    Shot and edited to menacing perfection in the Noki slaughter house. Couturing the throat of film now as well as ready-to-wear!
