Bjork - Arisen My Senses video

Björk’s new video is the story of life, mating and death – all at once

Arca also appears in the Jesse Kanda-directed visual for ‘Arisen My Senses’

Björk has revealed the music video for “Arisen My Senses”, the first track of her recent ninth studio album Utopia.

Directed by Jesse Kanda – who previously helmed the Icelandic star’s video for “Mouth Mantra”, and who shot the musician for Dazed’s cover story earlier this year – the video sees Björk and album collaborator Arca navigating a beautiful landscape of beautiful wombs, cacoons, slugs, phalluses, and tongues.

The video’s moving sculpture imagery was originally designed digitally by Kanda before being created in silicone. It “depicts the cycle of death, mating, and birth as one”, according to a press release.
