The Artist with Multiple Personalities

20721 ratings | 765488 views
Kim Noble is an artist with a difference – twenty of them, in fact. After suffering childhood abuse, Kim's mind split into twenty distinct personalities to cope with the trauma. Over a dozen personalities are painters, including Judy the bulimic teenager, a gay man named Ken, and a mother called Patricia. While Kim was diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder (DID) and raising her daughter Aimee, she and her various personalities began painting as a way of understanding their own complex mind. Now Aimee is at university studying law, and Kim is a world-renowned artist who exhibits her work internationally. VICE meets her on the eve of her group show at the Zebra One Gallery in London, aimed at raising awareness of mental health in art.

Kim says more than a dozen of her different personalities (she has over 100) are painters, including Judy the bulimic teenager, a gay man named Ken, and a mother called Patricia. WATCH NEXT: Sleep Paralysis Inspired this Artist to Photograph his Nightmares - https://vice.video/2Eh6BOL

Our alters paint as well, it's nice to see how they have different styles and sometimes one painting is done by one than more of them. Good video, Vice and we wish them all the best.

There is controversy among mental health professionals when it comes to new findings and the details of the disorder, but there is no doubt that the symptoms are real, and so are the people experiencing them.
Krisynthia Gomez (11 hours ago)
So couple things to say... 1. Is Kim the original personality or is Bonnie? 2. I feel so sad for Ria, and it’s so much worse because she’s clearly trying to tell Kim/Bonnie what happened to them, and 3. I’m wondering if Anon is a dominant personality because it feels like she references the other personalities in her work.

But they don't reveal all personality. One personality is Where she forgot she have a daughter and she be like: " Thats not my baby ". And it's really heartbreaking to hear.

It is so sad to hear about Kim's past, and incredible how the mind protects itself in such a creative way. Her book "All of me" is really worth a read to understand better her story. I would love to know how this began, i think it is buried so deep in Kim's mind that even she does not know, but looking at Key's paintings and Ria's, to me it seems she was a slave in a Satanic cult, but her book gives no indication of this. Strange how Tavistok play a part in this as well, they are notorious for brainwashing the nation.

How society deals with DID is very sad :( Some validation goes a loooooong way. DID isnt even a "mental illness". Its a defense mechanism of the brain and is found in 1/100 people. It's the individual mental illnesses of the alters that the system needs to focus on. Everyone has their own baggage, especially alters!

It is hard to see someone with a mental health disorder. It is not visible. I m 15 and almost no one that I know knows that I 2 counselors and one psychiatrist say that I have PTSD, anger problems, severe anxiety, OCD and maybe some form of what you have, but people are surprised to know that this nice little girl who always gets A's was emotionally abused and neglected. But when they find out- lately I have blurted it out at school to people- they are surprised and feel bad for me. It is just like the severe physical medical problems. People do not see it unless you explain to them when something appears to be off with you. It is sad to me. You have to live with scares that few people know about and no one cares about. People just go on with their lives but when I say people have diagnosed me with PTSD I live with it and I suffer. I wish people would talk to the people with mental health problems because people like me who were recently told the way a person treated them was not normal and that is why they are suffering want to talk and not be alone. When I cry I cry alone and it is sad that no one stopped what was happening and no one stopped to get to know these people. I do not know if I have this but I feel a bit crazy saying I do. The sme thing happened with my OCD that was set off by abuse. It is not like her though. I am the main one,- I will be yelled at by another for saying this a likely hit- and their are three others.

The abuse paintings are, I don't want to use amazing because it's not something that should be normalized but they're stunning? Haunting? Something like that.

Chris (3 months ago)
People with DID have too many personalities, those who struggle with BPD have no clear self image, including their personality. As a BPD teenager, I can say I have no idea how I am, what I truly am and what kind of personality I have. I mean hell, I can't relate to the well known topic "Be yourself". Lol how am I supposed to be myself if I don't know who's that?

It Just broke my heart hearing her say : bonny *was* the main personnality especially knowing that only her can recognize thé daughter and non of the other personnalities does.. It must be really painful for that girl to be beside her Mother Who doesnt even know Who she is and when when she switches to bonny, she, the daughter, must be really happy.. God that makes me wanna cry..

Ritual Abuse. Organized groups of people get together and commit the most atrocious acts of violence and dehumanization. There are similar accounts of it in all parts of the world. Their testimony is damning..

Emeline Lotherington (4 months ago)
Wow, thank you, Vice for showing all of the art work and being rather honest about the representation. DID and mental illness is not a pleasant thing to endure, but it is so refreshing seeing some positive moments of people with these illnesses who have undergone so much hardship in life and are still able to smile and function in the world. It gives me so much hope and this was very informative as well. Thank you <3

this happens to people who have a hard time facing reality and they fall into their own minds. this is sort of like what happens when children have imaginary friends because they're lonely. she becomes the character that she needs at the time.

Rabin Rai (4 months ago)
9:04 "Free Me Please Help " 3:38.. her paintings show a reflection of her life and there is some arguable evidence she was a victim of child sexual abuse, caged and electric shocked, nowhere to flee so her mind had to disassociate from her core self, splitting parts of her mind with walls of amnesia barriers to cope with the overwhelming trauma..
