Norwegian avant-garde musician Jenny Hval released her sixth album, Blood Bitch, last year via Sacred Bones. It was an acclaimed concept album partly about menstruation and featuring a fictional time traveling vampire named Orlando. Now Hval has shared a NSFW video for “The Great Undressing.” Marie Kristiansen directs the clip, which stars Marte Germaine Christensen, who goes about her day in the city in the nude, something that no one else seems to notice. Watch it below.

Kristiansen explained the video in a press release: “I don’t want to overcomplicate the message; it’s my opinion that the audience should interpret this film as it suits them. I will, however, tell you what inspired me to make the film. From an intellectual point of view I was intrigued by what would happen if you watched a naked woman totally ignorant about her own nudity going about a normal day. Would she be perceived as a sexual object? Or would her nakedness and femininity become something ordinary and natural? I have not tried to steer the film in the direction I thought was right, it’s more of an experiment that you should be the judge of. From a spiritual point of view the film explores loneliness and isolation in a world where capitalism and blending in are the two ruling factors.”
