Beauty vs. oppression.

Legendary artist Wolfgang Tillmans has directed the video for Powell’s new track ‘Freezer’.

The visual features a series of Tillmans’ exquisitely-placed shots that flit from nature close-ups to photographs of police and security forces. Coupled with the UK producer’s jagged acid-techno soundscape, it makes for intense viewing.

Powell will perform in the Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern tomorrow night with Debonair and Pussy Mother as part of an NTS event. Tillmans, whose solo exhibition at the Tate is currently on until June 11, will be providing visuals as part of the performance.
