Last night, FKA twigs held a private opening for her immersive new art exhibition, Rooms, in London, debuting to the public today. The exhibition features 12 zodiac-inspired rooms, each of which representing a different astrological sign, concepted by a different artist. The Scorpio room, by Gary Card, mimics a bloodier version of Picasso's Guernica with a well of red paint  splattered around a white room full of paper mache body parts. The Libra room, created by Andrea Stanley, shows model Leilani Franco embodying the Libra symbol, balancing two metallic bowls between both hands.

Twigs took to social media last night to post a video of her own haunting performance at the exhibition, showcasing how the project is brought to life by its 30 performers, including twigs herself (who performs primarily in the Scorpio and Sagittarius rooms). The clip was shot by music video director Billy Boyd Cape.

The exhibition itself was created and will be hosted by champagne company Veuve Clicquot, that invites a creative figure to curate a Halloween-inspired, visually stimulating art installation each year. Last year, photographer Nick Knight curated the exhibit featuring fashion designers, filmmakers and even a taxidermist. This year, twigs is utilizing the fear tactic of Halloween and taking it up a level.

Rooms will run October 27-28. See photos from inside last night's private opening.
