Arca repeatedly implores the listener to "speak for your self-states," amidst an eruption of artillery fire and thundering kicks. "I'm asking for recognition that we have multiple selves without denying that there's a singular unit," she says, “I want to be seen as an ecosystem of minor self-states without being stripped of the dignity of being a whole." For Arca, it's about bringing together all of these different facets of (the) self and her work without having to feel beholden to any given one. For the video of Nonbinay, Arca collaborated with visual artist Frederik Heyman. Directed by Frederik Heyman Concept and scenario by Frederik Heyman and Arca Symbolic gestation by Alejandra Ghersi
