Liswaya directs a captivating visual poem for French artist Victor Solf's I Don't Fit. 

The video opens with the artist in a car, as coruscating lights expose the blank industrial space around him.

Suddenly, the same car brutally smashes into the side of his, causing a glittering explosion of glass and metal, before he gets out and walks towards another version of the car, taking his seat in the front. 

The perpetual repetition raises questions on the real narrative and world this concept takes place in, and is a brilliant opener for a planned series of collaborations between the director and artist. 

"This is the starting point of four upcoming music videos for Victor Solf," explains Liswaya. "This video is an introduction to the central element of our visuals, the car which becomes the direct metaphor of a beating heart. Its engine roaring and crystallising around a metallic shell to protect itself from impacts that are too strong."
