Braids 'Mini Skirt' by Kevan Funk
Kevan Funk has created a pop video with a message for Braids' track Mini Skirt, with charismatic singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston partly performing the song in an industrial-sized nursery garden, and intercut with scenes of the commercial production and packaging of flowers, drawing a clear parallel between this controlling of nature and Braids' feminist lyrics.
"When thinking about the song and it's content, I began very interested in the idea of commodification and control of femininity in a patriarchal societal construct, and liberation from that restraint. A central consideration that emerged from that was a historical relationship to nature, in terms of the patriarchal and imperial societal impulse to control, conform and dominate."
