Sevdaliza 'Human' by Emmanuel Adjei
A hooded figure stalks the halls, beneath the watchful gaze of others in Emmanuel Adjei's haunting clip for Sevdaliza.
A simple, yet intense scenario unfolds here - co-devised by the artist and the director – which scratches at a human desire to stare and to be stared at. And has a brave and beautiful visual twist.
Adjei invites us to follow a cloaked ghostlike figure gliding through the hallways of a mansion. But once the figure reaches a large open space, populated by men watching from a balcony above, the true form of the figure is revealed.
Excellent costume and visual effects give this a seductive and mythological feel. Watching it feels voyeuristic, invasive even. But you can't tear yourself away.
