Florence + The Machine
Florence: "'Big God' was written about that feeling when someone has not replied to your text, the modern phenomenon of 'ghosting' which is one of my favourite words but not my favourite feeling. I was describing it to someone and they said to me 'you need a big god', as if the need in me were so cavernous it would take something enormous to fill it. Probably something bigger than a text message."
The video was partly inspired by the painting by Goya called 'Witches' Flight'.
Director: "It's about the power the darkness of longing can give you when you embrace your inner beast alone…. Women who bond themselves together like this, and rise up together like this, are usually accused of being witches, so I wanted to explore that. I also wanted to create an abstraction of Florence as if every woman was a small piece of glass that had shattered inside her. Now they join her outside her body and fight with her, love with her, go to war with her."

MØ: "I'm so happy to present this video because it feels very true to the song and to who I am. It was inspired by a painting called 'The Dance Of Life' by one of my favorite artists, Edvard Munch. It's an illustration of three women-one in white, one in red and one in black-and tells a story about three stages of human life: youth, maturity, and old age. I was always drawn to this image as a kid due to its simple symbolism and emotion and have been dying to do a video that could reflect on it. Since 'When I Was Young' is all about nostalgia and reflecting on life-especially the past, but also the now and the future-it just seemed like the perfect time to do it."

THE CARTERS
"So when Beyoncé shoots at the Louvre - taking on by turns the poses of Venus de Milo and Victory - she's continuing an artistic project of recontextualizing classical Western art, of making herself the aesthetic object on which so much wealth and cultural capital has been spent. And coming from a black woman, that's a radical statement."
"In a way, Beyoncé is exploiting/marketing her blackness as creativity - as a kind of weapon - within and against the very Eurocentric system of culture and consumption from which she has benefited," says James Smalls, a professor of art history at the University of Maryland Baltimore County."
Beyonce and Jay-Z
"Black dancers on the gallery floor challenge white authority in front of French neoclassical artist Jacques-Louis David's painting (The Consecration of the Emperor Napoleon) of a court scene of men at the Notre Dame in the 1800s."

St. Vincent
A girl van kunstenaar Ron Mueck.
"When encountering the beautiful Annie Erin Clark as a living sculpture in St. Vincent's "Cheerleader" video, towering at 10 times the scale of anyone in the gawking gallery crowd, one might be mesmerized and entranced. Unless, of course, one has already encountered the immaculately detailed, ultra-realistic, surreally-proportioned works of Ron Mueck."
