Björk the Goddess: ‘Notget’

Björk has released a stunning video to accompany ‘Notget’ in which she transforms from sea creature to a blinding goddess of light. ‘Safe from death’ indeed, as the chorus repeats hypnotically.

Directed by Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones, creatively directed by Björk and James Merry acted as creative directors and mask designers that the singer wore in the video. Bjork donned a motion-capture suit to embody a mercurial and transforming character in the light goddess she depicts. The Cthulu creature that swims towards her seems so threatening but only until the goddess touches it…

The video was in the Björk Digital exhibition last year at Somerset House, so it’s good to see it on general release to a wider audience here.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
