A collaboration over 18-years in the making, SIA and director DANIEL ASKILL's audio/visual works have been viewed over two billion times, nominated for countless awards and not-so-quietly revolutionised the way we see both sound and vision as one.
'Sia+Daniel Askill: The Videos 2003-2021' is an immersive retrospective breaking down the pairs' complete video works to date, as well as a bespoke visual interlude created by Daniel Askill exclusively for the exhibition. These pieces, including GRAMMY-nominated video for 'Chandelier' (featuring renowned dancer and actress Maddy Ziegler) 'Alive' and 'Elastic Heart' chart Sia's rise from indie darling to global musical icon, as well as Askill's journey in becoming one of the world’s most influential music video and commercial directors of our time.
“I've got thick skin and an elastic heart”
Daniel Askill is an Australian-born filmmaker and visual artist based in New York City. His work is most often seen through explorations of film, video installation, music videos and commercials.
Between his solo work and that of Collider (the production company he founded in 2001), Askill has worked closely with iconic brands and artists including Alexander McQueen, Apple, Paul McCartney, Nowness, Acne Studios and long-time collaborator Sia to redefine the visual texture of pop-culture today. With Sia, Askill's videos have been viewed over two billion+ times on YouTube, while her 2017 Coachella performance (which he directed) was described as 'One of the great moments in Coachella history.'
