How great is this fashion film for Raquel Allegra‘s AW/13 collection? It so reminded me of Marina Abramovic’s ‘Light/Day‘ with performance artist, longtime collaborator + ex-lover, Ulay. In Marina’s (godmother of performance art) version however, they’re kneeling.
I just love the juxtapositions at play here: The collection as a whole, is full of separates, very light in weight + silhouette, which would call for a less aggressive situation like sitting in front one another above – confrontation is never comfortable but bearable for very few. Then the action of slapping one another, isn’t exactly a soft one, especially as the video progresses, with the slaps getting harder.
Love, love, love!
