Daniel Sannwald directs a video inspired by Rodin's The Kiss.
No less than 24 hours after Antony confirmed her new album 'HOPELESSNESS' was produced with Hudson Mohawke, Ross Birchard has shared a new video for Indian Steps - a collaboration between the two that features on Hudson Mohawke's 'Lantern'.
Directed by Daniel Sannwald, the clip concentrates on the intimacy of an old couple, with close-ups centered on their embrace before golden strands blanket their union. In a statement to i-D, Sannwald explained that his film was partly inspired by Auguste Rodin's sculpture The Kiss. “For the video I recreate that sculpture with two elderly bodies,” he says. “It was very touching and moving to see two aging bodies in such an intimate way. I wanted to use them as a symbol of time but also to capture the beauty of such vulnerability.” “I strongly believe that every deep love has its own place and space and, therefore, lives on forever.”
