Lassamie Prasimay - 23rd Apr 2018

The latest collaboration between Moses Sumney and Allie Avital is an extraordinary work of visual poetry. 

Co-directing a video for the first time, the 7 minute video for Quarrel tells a story rich in symbolism and surreal imagery. It depicts Sumney’s kinship with a horse, and the tragedy that follows a shocking discovery.

The video’s disturbing revelation features the sculpture No Life Lost II by sculptor Berlinde De Bruyckere. Which is itself not for the faint of heart, or the horse-lover. It leads to a memorable ending.
