The Performers: Act VIII | JAMES MERRY

For Act VIII of Gucci and British GQ’s video series ‘The Performers’, embroidery artist James Merry travels across Iceland with his boyfriend, Jón Einar Björnsson, to create a mask inspired by a traumatic personal experience: “It’s about processing a time when I nearly drowned last year in Puerto Rico. I wanted to turn that experience into an artwork full of life and light.”
Director: Matt Lambert
Music: Sisi by Grylurnar, Vex by Sigrún, Ræ by Sigrún
