THE MUSIC VIDEO
“SHE WALKS LIKE A GODDESS, RESTS LIKE A SULTANA;
SHE HAS A MOHAMMEDAN’S FAITH IN PLEASURE
AND TO HER OPEN ARMS WHICH ARE FILLED BY HER BREASTS,
SHE LURES ALL MORTALS WITH HER EYES”
Excerpt from “Allegory”
in The Flowers of Evil by Charles Baudelaire
“Your King” is Grace Meer’s first music video.This musical short film was directed by Clément Legrand (Director) and Damien Laturaze (Visual Artist),
both rewarded by Lady Gaga in 2010.
The video depicts the myth of the Androgynous in its quest for uniqueness and self-fulfillment.
“THERE ALL IS ORDER AND BEAUTY, LUXURY, PEACE, AND PLEASURE”
Excerpt from “Allegory” in The Flowers of Evil
by Charles Baudelaire
The original search for love and its complementary polarity.
Full of artistic, mythological, philosophical and spiritual references, “Your King” proposes several levels of interpretation.
The short film thus reveals different aspects: the duality inside us, the light and the dark, the impulses of life and death, Eros and Thanatos, the sacred union of masculinity and femininity.
The artist, in the projection of her fantasies and in the abundance of her unconsciousness,
invites us to sound out her inner world with a mystical and elevating introspection.
