Start making travel plans. This spring, the Museum of Modern Art unveils a retrospective of the iconic, idiosyncratic, Icelandic visionary, Björk. Drawing from over 20 years of the artist’s works and eight full-length albums, MOMA will chronicle Björk’s career through sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, and costume.
“Black Lake” will be one such film piece, a sound and video installation commissioned by MOMA set to the song of the same name which appears on Björk’s new album Vulnicura. The trailer gives a tiny, spectacular preview of what to expect from the retrospective. It’s slightly NSFW (depending on where you work) and unequivocally stunning.
You can be sure I will not be miss seeing this in person. If you can go, make it happen.
