After dropping a response to the Muslim ban with her song "Bebin", which was praised by the New York Times and Pitchfork, Iranian-born Dutch artist Sevdaliza shares the new video for her track, "Amandine Insensible", and reveals the name of her self-released debut album, ISON, set to drop later this year. Directed by Piet Langeveld, the stunning video, which premiered on NPR, explores the concept of 'identity' as it features Sevdaliza assuming the varied yet limited roles assigned to women in our culture. In a brilliant twist, she is selling images from the video on Shuttershock to reimburse this campaign further playing into the eye-awakening concept. Check it and read more on the concept below.
"The story of Amandine explores the concept of 'identity' in a contemporary world that is rapidly changing due to the disappearance of 'boundaries'. Amandine is everything you want her to be. An extreme extraction of average life, representing a world where we have become so universal all feelings have disappeared. Paradoxically, this makes you feel uncomfortable. Her life takes place in an infinite white space, composed with minimal objects that represent different facets of the cycle of daily life. The accessibility of information and matter has created a new universal language, in which commercial brands play a key role. "
