David Knight - 30th July 2014

And now for something explosive. And also tender, and thought-provoking. Fleur & Manu's latest video, for the Sydney trio Movement's track Ivory, is a frank exploration of sexual intimacy between a young couple. It's all about sex - but it's also about love. 

A young couple, nude, recline on a bed, and then they begin to perform sex. It is real and natural, but then it becomes frozen, abstracted – literally framed - where both parties view themselves from without,and then becomes lost in surrealism.  

This is brave work - and frankly, very French - with courageous performances from the boy and girl. Maybe it will be the most controversial of the year so far - for all the right reasons.
