Nick Knight’s fantastic art/fashion/culture website SHOWstudio launched a new project today: a video diary by Asia Argento, updated three times daily. Titled “Don’t Bother to Knock,” the series is running with five entries so far in which the director and actress talks about travel (she is promoting a film), freaks (Todd Browning’s and others), burn care and more.
From the site:
As one of the Bal Masqué’s twelve muses –chosen by Maison Martin Margiela to model their silver flower dress at the grand event on the 24th October- controversial actress/director Asia Argento has kindly agreed to also lend her cinematic skills to SHOWstudio for a diary project that she has named ‘Don’t Bother To Knock’. Over ten days, from tomorrrow, 17 October, until the 25th of this month, Asia will document her daily life whilst she is over here promoting her new film via series of intimate video entries. Starting from 12:00hrs (UK time) tomorrow, these will be published three times per day: at noon, 6pm and midnight, so log on thrice daily to keep up!
The videos are candid, intimate and quite hypnotic. Check them out through the 25th.
