i love this music video so much
27 March 2019 | by isabelaghahowaSee all my reviews

Art that engages with the audience and immerses them into its narrative, physically embodies a space within reality and evokes raw emotion is art that needs and deserves appreciation, hence why performance art is my favourite form of art. When I first watched Sia's 'Elastic Heart' music video, I was unclear about it, but there was something about it I was deeply connected to in a way I hadn't been before to a piece of art. I wasn't sure how to take the visual imagery that was being presented to me or what to make of it, but after watching it again, not only did I notice there was an underlying story being told between Shia and Maddie but it also made me realise how impactful and expressive a music video can be in such little time which made me question what art can be and how it makes you feel. The first thing that struck me with the video was how the two characters engaged with each other in such a fluid and natural way, reacting to each other's physical expressions acknowledging the spiritual divide separating them creating a visually seamless but impassioned rhythm between them without words which in my opinion is the purest and most engaging form of telling a story as we can all connect to the body and we all speak the language our bodies express.

It created a relationship that we as the audience can latch onto and watch grow and develop. The emotional depth that the characters had to convey towards each other also helped bring out the powerful nature of not only the song and the internal struggle Sia is expressing in the song but the war between the two people in the cage. I felt that it was about self conflict and inner frustration and having to wage a war against yourself and the cage symbolises the inability to run away from this inevitable battle and the ending shows that eventually you can come to embrace the forms of yourself you previously couldn't come to accept and love and It was told so beautifully and In a way that really captured me. Art is not a rigid form of expression but one that can take many forms and meanings and this video really proved that to me and showed me how physical art can transcend the boundaries of storytelling and art.
