Video: Zola Jesus, “Clay Bodies”


This is gothic siren Zola Jesus playing Kiki de Montparnasse in a Man Ray portrait, the only thing missing is the part where she starts crying pearls. For this shoot Zola and her video team busted into abandoned art deco locations in Detroit, including churches and zoos, so its gritty beauty is also crumbling and renegade, in the same way as her music. It's like she's speaking for the ghosts who haunt the buildings, finally giving voice to lost souls. (via p4k)
