David Knight - 4th Sept 2018

A Kind Of Man - that's the new solo project from singer, songwriter and composer Bjørn Rosenquist – enters a fascinating alternate reality in this absorbing video by Meeto.

It starts with Rosenquist falling from a high rise, before apparently waking from a dream - but Meeto employs various subtle strategies to reveal that the dream is still going on. From being at a party, watching a cartoon version of himself on TV, to a happy, romantic interlude with a mysterious girl, Rosenquist negotiates these different scenarios, always an intriguing and charismatic presence. 

Most importantly, Danish director Meeto captures that sense of the dreams people actually have - ones rooted in reality, reflecting our conflicting emotions. A brief glimpse of an Escher painting of Rosenquist is symbolic of that pervading sense that nothing quite adds up, but it's cool anyway.
