Didn’t we just tell you there were more Kasper Bjørke goodies on the way? Well, guess what, here’s the next one and this time it’s a truly special treat: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the exclusive premiere of Kasper’s new video “Deep Is The Breath”!
That’s right, for now it’s not available anywhere but here on the HUGO blog. Just like his last video for “Lose Yourself to Jenny”, it was directed by swiss-french graphic designer & illustrator Florence Tétier in collaboration with Nicolas Coulomb. Since we’re huge fans of Florence’s work and her arts and fashion-focused magazine Novembre, we asked her for a brief interview which you may kindly find below. And now without further ado, enjoy the exclusive video and remember where you saw it first!
What made you launch the magazine Novembre?
Novembre was born in Switzerland in 2010, where at the time there were no such magazines about fashion and arts, with international ambitions. We were evolving in a very productive crowd in both fields and we decided it was time to create a media where all these people could have a voice.
You seem to like the idea of presenting other peoples work. Have you ever thought of curating an exhibition?
Not really, for now, I’m more comfortable with pages as an exhibition space.
And if you were to curate a movie-retrospective, what films would you show?
Jurassic Park / Steven Spielberg
Cry Baby / John Waters
History of violence / Cronenberg
The little mermaid / Disney
Inauguration of the pleasure dome / Kenneth Anger
What was your inspiration for the lo-fi look of the “Lose Yourself to Jenny” video?
I wanted to do something that was really “me”. I film and take pictures with my Blackberry all the time, so it was pretty obvious for me to use it.
What have been your ideas for the new Video?
We wanted to show the idea of “missing someone”, as sung in the chorus, and wanted it to be the portrait of another girl, cause it’s gonna be a trilogy of portrait with the 3rd single.
I think the roadtrip feeling fits this song perfectly, and I wanted her to be alone, even if she was the “passenger” (don’t know if it’s the right word > i mean she’s not driving so she’s obviously not alone, but filmed alone anyway). We wanted it to be a bit surreal too, with lightnings and cabaret-like, as if she was just out of the guy’s imagination…
One final question: Hungry or Foolish?
