Roger Ballen's collaboration with South African rap-rave crew Die Antwoord on the music video for their track I Fink U Freeky has mesmerised fan and film audiences alike. Since its release in 2012 the video has clocked up over 30 million viewings on YouTube and has won two major accolades - Best Music Video Award at the International Film Festival of the Art of Cinematography Plus Camerimage, and the Music Video Grand Prix Award at the Curtas Vila do Conde International Film Festival. Together they created “a parallel reality”, Ballen says - a reality we also encounter in a series of dark and quirky staged photographs taken by Ballen which interweave Die Antwoord’s performances with his art installations.
