Watch Jesse Kanda’s Otherworldly Video for Arca’s “Knot”

Did you like FKA twigs‘ “Water Me” video?

That was designer and director Jesse Kanda’s work. The artwork for experimental producer and Kanye-collaborator Arca’s freakishly excellent &&&&& mixtape (see at the bottom of the post) came from his twisted mind too. Arca and Kanda are now collaborating on a film called TRAUMA, with the first scene, which you can watch above, being soundtracked by “Knot.” More details here:

Trauma is an ongoing film project by Jesse Kanda and Arca first exhibited at MOMA PS1 at the end of 2013. The film follows a nonlinear narrative about the death of a salaryman, a drunk driving infant and takes place within a subconscious world. TRAUMA’s score will span through Arca’s existing and future works.

Scene 1 depicts a trio of disfigured children locked in synchronised dance, celebrating their inner and outer beauty in the limelight.

The Film in its entirety will be shown in various galleries through out the world over the course of this year..

“Knot” came from Arca’s &&&&& mixtape, which you can listen to in full.
