A song for Stærk&Christensen
Trentemøller has made a new song with Lisbet Fritze for a short film feat. Sean Penn and Helena Christensen as part of Stærk&Christensen's exhibition “ In My Dream Last Night ...”, an exhibition of films, stills, sound & objects by Camilla Stærk and Helena Christensen, which took place at the National Arts Club in New York.
More films have been created with collaborators Chrysta Bell, Jackson Carter, Oh Land, Salman Rushdie, Sebastian Sartor and Waris Ahluwalia, cinematography by James Demetri and Christian Larsen, produced and executed in partnership with Velem and Milk, New York.
The official press release says:
‘In My Dream Last Night...’ is the armature behind an ongoing short film and sound concept by creative duo Stærk&Christensen, in collaboration with a number of artists from various fields who are a continuous source of inspiration to the duo. A collection of personal moments, thoughts and dreams are revealed and interpreted through each collaborator, underpinning the composition of the work.
Surreal in nature, the collective dreamscape created by the films, stills and objects explore the duality of darkness and lightness within the mind, envisioning a universe through the spectrums of the poetic, the erotic, love and solitude. The surreal cinematic experience highlights Stærk&Christensen’s fascination with capturing authentic emotional gravitas, physical movement and voyeuristic opportunity.
Whilst Camilla Stærk and Helena Christensen are independently known within the fashion industry, together they are creating a growing body of work within the realms of design, architecture, photography and film.
