Björk's 'Arisen My Senses' Video Is Her Most Erotic Yet


The video is directed by longtime Björk collaborator Jesse Kanda.

Here's some key words to think about while watching Bjork's new "Arisen My Senses" video: phallus, womb, slug, tongue, Arca's ass, umbilical cord, flame, fetus, apocaplypse.

The video is directed by longtime Bjork collaborator Jesse Kanda, who digitally designed the video's central phallic womb/ interlocking tongues sculpture that was then created in real life out of silicone. Bjork can first be found warmly enveloped within this moving, sexual structure, before emerging to smile into a planet of flaming reds and oranges while gleefully licking her lips. The central sculpture of the film "depicts the cycle of death, mating, and birth as one," according to a press release.

Equally important to note is Arca's presence in this music video. He worked heavily as a producer on this album and this song, and appears in the film in a latex bondage-inspired ensemble, connected to Bjork's copulating womb by a twisting umbilical cord. He then finds time to bow down to Bjork against the backdrop of a sky in flames.

"Arisen My Senses" follows equally striking videos for "Utopia," "Blissing Me," and "The Gate"--if we're lucky, we could be on track to end up with a fully realized visual album from this team of legends.
