This promising new series explores artistic collaboration, and the first episode features Björk and collaborator Jesse Kanda.
Our first film features friends, collaborators and artistic soulmates Björk and Jesse Kanda. The pair worked on two of the Icelandic artist’s most amazing videos – 2016’s Mouth Mantra and last year’s Arisen My Senses.
