Vaults 'Hurricane' by Alexandra Green

Vaults 'Hurricane' by Alexandra Green

Alexandra Green's latest collaboration with Vaults is a study in intimacy, memory, and trust. It's presented very simply - a man and a woman almost naked on a bed of flowers in a studio space that's been artificially lit to enhance the performative aspect of the ritual that's about to unfold.

Vaults herself is one of the video's protagonists, and her co-star begins delicately wrapping her in black fabric. It's a surreal piece of imagery - evoking biblical imagery from the garden of Eden as well as ancient burial rituals whilst simultaneously looking like one section of a much larger Gregory Crewdson-esque tapestry. A simple act unfolds in a very visual way before our eyes.

This the second outing as a director for Vaults by choreographer Ally Green - who has now joined the director's roster at Bullion Productions.

From the director

ALEXANDRA GREEN:

"Taking inspiration from a documentary about sculptor Anthony Gormley, who only trusts his wife to wrap him for the initial cast for his sculptures. It's an intense process, but one of the most connected and beautiful moments I'd seen between two people.

"The visual for Hurricane is about physically preserving that moment or a memory of someone. Paying attention to who they are at that time with such detail that you physically try to keep them, or an essence of them, forever. There is, of course, a darker side to it. A sad passion, it feels overwhelming at times, the act of trying to capture a moment of love instead of living it, not quite being able to connect to each other. But the overriding feeling is one of a powerful, unrivaled trust in the relationship."
