Surreal video “911” by Lady Gaga
Have you already seen Lady Gaga’s latest video?!
It‘s an incredibly surreal action, mixing of dream, subconsciousness and reality. Phantasmagoria of images, not connected places, discombobulated actions.
The singer constantly changes her costumes and jewelry pieces, whipping up an atmosphere and leading us to the culmination of the whole story. Clothes and accessories reflects the video concept via custome pieces by contemporarty artist, her fashion director Nicola Formichetti and stylist Marta del Rio.
This video is about her personal experience. Lady Gaga called it “poetry of pain”. In her instagram she wrote: “This short film is very personal to me, my experience with mental health and the way reality and dreams can interconnect to form heroes within us and all around us”.
In one scene the singer wears a silver Halo headpiece from Shaun Leane’s archive, created for Alexander McQueen’s La Poupee collection SS97
The video contains many references to the film “The Color of Pomegranates”, Soviet art film of 1969 directed by Sergei Parajanov.
