Flying Hórses - Unsettled

There are many words to describe the visual for Flying Hórses’ Unsettled - but the word “breathtaking” seems to be the most apt description. Shot in the beautiful, but desolate landscape of Iceland, we find the artist confined within a glass box, surrounded by the vastness of nature around her. The box begins to fill with smoke, overwhelming and suffocating. As the box starts to fill, she tries to escape for a moment, before resigning and quietly wallowing in the haze around her.

The artist has previously addressed the meaning of her entrapment: “The smoke-filled box is a metaphor for the overwhelming feeling of being unsettled. Although you can see there are beauty and light nearby, your mind cannot reach it until you face the darkness, instead of trying to escape it.” Director Timothee Lambrecq builds a strong connection between the viewer and the artist’s quiet struggle with herself, painting a rather beautiful portrait of the dark and often debilitating state that many can often experience.

Flying Hórses is the project of Montreal instrumental artist Jade Bergeron.
