Royal College of Art graduate Noémie Goudal, winner of the inaugural Corinthia Artist in Residence 2012, recently unveiled ‘Harbour,’ created whilst residing at the hotel as part of Corinthia Hotel London’s initiative to foster the best of British nurtured talent across different arts disciplines.

Noémie was joined by figures from the esteemed panel of judges, comprising some of the UK’s leading voices on the arts and design scene: Dan Stevens, British actor currently starring in Downton Abbey; Caroline Rush, CEO British Fashion Council and Ben Evans, Director, London Design Festival.

Also present were artists, collectors and society figures from impressionist Ronnie Ancona to retail expert Felicia Brockle bank to philanthropist Ella Krasner.

Noémie’s exhibition will be open to the public from 9thMay until 9th June at Corinthia Hotel London. Exhibited were Noémie’s three large-scale pieces of work, which she created whilst residing at Corinthia London. Noémie’s answer to the hotel’s “Unknown Views” brief was to take the ultimate place of escape, and create journeys into fictional worlds. Noémie entitled the final exhibition ‘Harbour’ in reference to Corinthia London’s location in front of theater.

Noémie worked through nights and around guests and staff to build her sculptural artworks entitled ‘Forest’, ‘Pier’ and ‘Road’. The residency took Noémie into every part of the hotel and the surrounding environs, and while the artist usually creates four to five finished works a year, three scenes were created during a relatively short space of one month. Noémie Goudal says: “From the harbor, there is the view of the horizon, the perspective of the exotic and potential discoveries, which relate directly to the images that I have created. The hotel is a place of refuge and the views, my backdrops, provide the possibility of further escape.”

Noémie’s practice has predominantly focused on the construction of spaces that enable ‘new perspectives’ within the photographic framework. Noémie creates scenes that offer multiple understandings – underlying narratives in which new lands of perception are possible. Noémie is currently a much sought after name following a plethora of prestigious industry awards.

Noémie’s specially commissioned work adds to the artistic talent that exudes from within the walls of the hotel with bespoke creations throughout, from the interior design of GA Design and David Collins Studio. Noémie’s work was selected from the 1,000 artists by the esteemed panel of judges.
