The Golden Deer Videos of Sarah P.
Join us on Tuesday 26 July, 10:00–10:04 am, for the private view of an exhibition of recent work by Berlin-based artist and musician Sara P.
As the former lead singer of the popular indie group Keep Shelly In Athens, Sarah’s recent work shows how she’s evolved as a solo artist.
Focusing on contemporary issues such as peace & rebirth, renewal, and, essentially freedom, her latest endeavors are a love letter to her inner psyche, to the rich and untamed expression within. “I wanted it to escalate” says Sarah, “I wanted it to have many colors.”
This exhibition offers a selected view into Sarah’s new single “Golden Deer”, taken from her recent solo debut EP “Free”.
When asked about the single, Sarah commented, ‘Golden Deer was inspired by a dream I had about this deer leading me to a magical forest where everything was possible. I guess, following the deer symbolized tearing down the fences I’ve built around me because of my fears.’
She adds, ‘Throughout “Free” there has been this steady but slow walk towards the light. If “Dirty Sunday” that serves as the opener of the EP is dark and heavy, “Golden Deer”, the final song, is like an excited heart that’s pumping for the new beginnings.’
Presented in Style of Sound’s Berlin space, the videos are brought to life with not one but three music videos – or dare we say three acts – which were directed by the Berlin based visual geniuses Schall & Schnabel, each installed in a distinct manner.
Pierre Horn & Eileen Huhn of Schall & Schnabel commented, ‘With our video, we visualize a dream. The colors, the pictures, the visual elements layer and in their multiplication a crazy interaction, and new associations.’
They add, ‘Some sequences remind of coral reefs, others of a kaleidoscope. A very own, powerful, poppy, and experimental image language and dynamic was created, bringing an atmosphere that is charming and playful at the same time.’
The three different versions give viewer’s the opportunity to choose how deep to dive into the dream. Follow the link below to experience each of the videos.
