Vaults 'Vultures' by Rei Nadal
Barcelonian Tumblr artist and regular SHOWstudio contributor Rei Nadal (renowned in fashion circles for her 'Death And Milk' Tumblr) makes a bold step towards proper directing with her video for Vaults' Vultures, and series of memorable images, connected only by their theme of female struggle.
Physical pain and discomfort is encapsulated with unusual footage of stick insects walking across mascara'd eyes, a woman's bleeding nipple, and a choreographed piece of dancing 'witches' that ties disparate images together. Rei was inspired by the 'dark lullaby’ aspects of the song by a band likely to get much better known in 2015.
She told SHOWStudio (the video was premiered on the website): "It made me think of a group of woman chanting to each other and to themselves, not to sleep but to comfort each other, telling their story and what it hurts them but also sharing their love and joy. I think these two sentiments were equally important to be represented in the video. As a woman there are so many difficulties in the world; the fear of violence every day, dehumanisation because of my sex, censorship... But in the end I just want to remind myself how lucky I am to be a woman."
