“A Game of Fashion And Architecture” – a short film by KAPLINSKI

What happens when you bring architecture and fashion film together? The answer could simply be:KAPLINSKI, the title of a recent short film created by filmmaker Benjamin Seroussi (known for his videos for Louis Vuitton, Maison Martin Margiela, Lacoste, Nowness, and others) in collaboration with David Tajchman (an award-winning architect based in Paris, France). The film explores the ways an architect and a filmmaker can complement each other, featuring architectural structures made of children’s wooden building blocks. Sometimes a prison, sometimes a garment, the structures envelop the bodies of the models, before they inevitably fall apart when touched, turning the film into an artistic dialogue between the rigidity of architecture and the fluid movement of the body.

KAPLINSKI introduces models Marie Meyer and Caroline de Maigret, as well as musical artist Benjamin Clementine. The soundtrack was composed and performed by Dougy Mandagi and Toby Dundas, members of Australian band The Temper Trap.

 The name KAPLINSKI is a combination of the name Kapla (the brand of wooden bricks Seroussi used to play with as a child) and the suffix –inski. The creators of the video made up this name as a reference to Constructivism (an early-20th-century art movement which emerged in Russia), which inspired both the photography and aesthetic of the film.
