Premiered on Nowness, 2018
Electronic band All XS provide the score for this new video from director Sebastian Vargas, set in a sculpture park designed by avant-garde artist Not Vital. The dreamlike landscape is punctuated by peculiar structures including a house that hides itself, a mirror bridge, and a tower of hair—all befitting an artist who has been referred to as the master of miraculous encounters. The snowbound fields of the artist-designed park are looked over by a group of loyal guardians—played by the Swiss foursome.
Talking about the experience of filming in this unique location, the Switzerland-based director explains: “By exploring this manipulated landscape with music and film, I wanted to transmit a personal experience—the same I had the first time I visited the park. The space is an authentic realm of pure beauty and contemplation."
