After closing out the Venice Biennale last month, Solange is continuing to hone in on her visual skills by sharing an extended cut of her interdisciplinary, performance art film When I Get home. Named after her most recent album, the spot is meant to explore themes around origin and how that affects our identity, posing the question: “how much of ourselves do we bring with us versus leave behind in our evolution?”

The piece was directed and edited by Solange herself, who tapped Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori as contributing directors. It was shot in the singer’s hometown of Houston and originally released in March at the same time as the album. The extended cut now gives fans a further glimpse into her creative vision, offering additional scenes and even a new track, “Dreams (Demo/2).”

Prior to the global release, Solange gave an early look at the extended version to museums around the world, hosting premieres at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the V&A in London and more. Watch the full video below and see her When I Get Home interpretation come to life.

Solange recently staged another artistic performance at the Getty Center Museum in Los Angeles, curating an installment called “Bridge-s” that included a series of films, performances, and talks. Meanwhile, she’s slated to appear on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah tonight, December 12.
