Danish artist Kill J collaborates with Ben Thornley on the video for Dead Weight Soldier, which begins intriguingly with a sinewy female bodybuilder dragging a baseball bat studded with nails across a factory floor.

What follows is a symbolic act of revenge, an unquestionably strong image delivered in stark black and white which suits Kill J's uncompromising approach, and may be too strong for some.


"Revenge fantasy. Retaliation against an incompetent man that I have encountered quite a few times in different forms through out my life. Hot air. Egomaniac. Self-servant. Driven by sex and power. Has no real talent but is very good at taking credit for other people’s achievements."
