Music • David LaChapelle stages star ballet dancer and bad boy of the scene Sergei Polunin for 'Take Me To Church' by Hozier

21.02.2015 • The new music video for “Take Me To Church” features Ukrainian star ballet dancer and bad boy of the scene Sergei Polunin, who really seems to be fighting for his life in a dance battle. The song has become a new gay liberation hymn, in the original video two men are chased by a gang and brutally beaten for their love. . A clear message aimed at Russia and the new laws under Putin’s rule in violation of human rights. A statement from out and proud David LaChapelle, and especially from the Ukrainian born dancer, who is also well known in Russia. Sergei Polunin, previously based in London, where he pursued his dancing career and worked as a model for Marc Jacobs, seems to slowly but surely be moving away from dance. Hollywood has welcomed him with open arms and perhaps a glamorous acting career is calling? We will certainly be keeping our eyes out to see what will become of the striking 25 year old in the near future.

Hozier, born and raised in Catholic Ireland, comments on 'Take me to church' on fuse.tv : "The song, to me, is about what it is to be a human, what it is to love...

retrospective • GoSee Recommends: It's oh so ... BJÖRK. MOMA New York dedicates a retrospective to the versatile Icelandic vocal talent.

18.02.2015 • The Museum of Modern Art presents a retrospective of the multifaceted work of composer, musician, and singer Björk. The exhibition draws from more than 20 years of the artist’s daring and innovative projects and her eight full-length albums to chronicle her career through sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, and costumes. In the Museum lobby, instruments used on Biophilia (2011)—a gameleste, pipe organ, gravity harp, and Tesla coil—play songs from the album at different points throughout the day.

On the second floor, in the Marron Atrium, two spaces have been constructed: one is dedicated to a new sound and video installation, commissioned by The Museum of Modern Art, for “Black Lake,” a song from Björk’s new album Vulnicura (2015); and the second is a cinema room that screens a retrospective in music videos, from Debut (1993) to Biophilia.

On the third floor, Songlines presents an interactive, location-based audio experience through Björk’s albums, with a biographical narrative that is both personal and poetic, written by the acclaimed Icelandic writer Sjón, along...

Art • Dustin Yellin’s impressive glass installation for New York City Ballet’s Art Series at David H. Koch Theater, an explanation video by the artist and installation views, here on GoSee

18.02.2015 • After FAILE and JR, it’s the turn of Brooklyn-based artist Dustin Yellin to participate in the third installation of New York City Ballet’s Art Series initiative that invites every year contemporary visual artists to create original works inspired by ballet.

Dustin Yellin, who is also the founder of the Pioneer Works Center for Arts and Innovation, created for the occasion 15 large-scale glass and mixed-media sculptures, each weighing more than 3,000 pounds. The sculptures form part of “Pyschogeographies”, Yellin’s ongoing project that is meant to depict the maps of the psyche.

The multilayered pieces are made of cutouts from books, newspapers and magazines, forming intricate, collage-like compositions that seem to be floating in space. Installed at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, the impressive sculptures pay homage to NYBC’s long tradition of artistic collaborations with icons like Andy Warhol, Keith Haring or Julian Schnabel, as well as to the contagious energy of its talented dancers.

As NYCB informs, Dustin Yellin’s installations will remain on view...

Advertising • Sweat inducing REEBOKS 'Be More Human' campaign has a worldwide effect. GoSee interviews Associate creative director Matt Miller from Venables Bell & Partners San Francisco

18.02.2015 • ‘Be More Human’ is the motto of the CrossFit pros. Reebok wishes to challenge us to leave our comfort zone and realise our full mental and physical potential with this campaign. Brand president Matt O'Toole says: ‘Reebok is convinced that we have the power to develop mentally and socially as well as physically and test our limits. If you adopt this lifestyle, you find yourself in a community of people who have a joint goal: finding their own top form.’

The print images do not feature star athletes, but normal people that have found a natural physicality and a more fulfilled life in the process. Yet the corresponding ‘Freak Show’ commercial also shows that this lifestyle doesn’t necessarily go down well with everyone. On the Be More Human Experience online platform, fitness enthusiasts from all over the world can define what Be More Human means to them. Venables Bell & Partners in San Francisco developed this worldwide campaign. Creative Matt Miller played a key part in the process and gave GoSee a bit of an insight of what went on behind-the-scenes….

The agency in charge was St John's with Aurélien Rousseau and Jai-Yen Oh as well as creatives Thomas Birch, Bruno Delhomme and Alexandra Chapuis.

Damien KRISL published the 'La Mer Violette' spread in FAINT MAGAZINE. Stylist Melanie Perego used labels such as Gucci, Disquared 2, Christian Louboutin, Jean Paul Gaultier, Louis Vuitton and Agent Provocateur. The photographer and director on the shoot: 'it was shot in an abstract, futuristic room without a solid floor. Instead, there is a water surface, which reflects the geometric stone architecture and the deep red light. The original idea was to create a symbol for the psychological process of reflecting, repressing and projecting the positive and negative aspects of our personalities in both our...
