Rob Ulitski - 4th May 2021

Oscar Lang embodies the cyclical frustration of lockdown in James Slater's promo for Stuck. 

Filmed whilst most of us were still stuck in our homes pulling our hair out, the video is a no-frills affair, showing the artist in a range of familiar situations trying his best not to break. 

Shot in a series of zooms and reveals, Lang switches from static cycling to repeatedly typing STUCK to screaming into the void. It's just another typical lockdown day, grappling with new routines and a sense of despair which just won't budge... 

Another hit from Slater, with top-notch cinematography from Simon Plunket.
