Jen Meller is, and what’s more, she brings the aesthetic to the often unusual and ever evolving concepts and storyline I’m trying to communicate in my videos. In “Trying to Remember” (BLIGHT.Records, premiered on All Things Go in November 2017) we used the Snorri Cam to capture these scenes in which I´m running dizzily from a bedroom to a forest, trapped in my own nightmare sequence. The Snorri cam was exactly what we needed in order to make this nightmare all too real on film. Jen Meller, in an artistic way, completes my visions and brings all the color and effect to them. She knows how to listen and she knows her stuff when it comes to filming long and short things. She’s done every Loi Loi video, and I can´t imagine working with anyone else.
In a lot of ways, then, Venus looks to act as a disruptive force, forcing confrontation with topics that many may consider uncomfortable. “I’m trying to make observations and make people feel uncomfortable to create some broader change,” Meller says, citing Larry Clark’s 1995 film Kids as her primary source of inspiration.
