Abd Al Malik 'Allogene' by Romain Cieutat
Romain Cieutat has created a stark and memorable visual accompaniment to Abd Al Malik's Allogene – a man swathed in robes who strides through the walkways of a deserted maze of concrete and steel, whose glimpses of exposed body reveal his special quality.
As he removes layers of clothing, he's revealed as a figure composed not of flesh and blood, but light - and also a human canvas of 3D imagery...
"The music video Allogène is about following a fictional character I call the 'screen man'. He walks alone in an urban environment and takes his clothes off as the video goes on. He slowly reveals his body, which is made of light instead of skin. He runs away from the city and finally ends up in a desert, free, released from his 'armour'.
"We used the Keying technology on a green screen, but the green screen was the character himself. Dancer Abdoulaye Barry, who played the 'screen man', wore a green one-piece suit that allowed us to superimpose 3D images."
