Internal Departure with Kilian Martin

When you hear the word “skateboarding” do you automatically think “art”? Skateboarder Kilian Martin and filmmaker Brett Novak’s “Internal Departure” video plays with the idea of skateboarding being an art.  This duos 8th collaboration takes place in an Australian gallery that features the work of Kay Walkoviak. Throughout the video, Martin is seen performing tricks and routines while engaging with the different installations by Walkoviak featured in the gallery. Watching the clip I was impressed by Martin’s ability to move throughout the space like a ballerina performing. Each move more graceful and cooler than the last. The short clip is definitely a must-see; It’ll give you a different perspective on skateboarding.
