Nina Hynes 'Go' by Neil Dowling
Having fled to the forest, people are missing the life they led before their flight, in Neil Dowling's visual for Nina Hynes.
The video for Go - which plays on a theme of isolation in an uncertain time - was shot in the forest at Songsvann, Oslo, under social distancing conditions. Depicting a trio of characters trying to find a sense of normality in very abnormal times, there is a haunting undercurrent of uncertainty and fear, whilst being punctuated with moments of hope and new perspectives.
The use of movement is inspired, as the characters mime through everyday routines and tasks - cooking, cleaning, dancing. These scenes are surreal and melancholic, but dig a little deeper and it could be suggested that this is 'muscle memory' - the characters each keeping their skills sharp ready for a move back into society, and back to 'normal life'... if such a thing exists anymore.
