Björk Teases MoMA Retrospective with a Chilling New Trailer
In advance of her highly anticipated MoMA retrospective next month, Björk has released a teaser of the forthcoming video installation "Black Lake," a song from her new album Vulnicura, and it's just as eery and quintessentially Björk as you might expect. In the short clip, the nearly nude artist lays down shrouded in shrubbery that covers her unmentionable areas. As the music gets louder, the camera zooms in on an opening in her torso, which contains an apparent stream of liquid that flows through her body before transforming into her name, followed by the dates of the exhibition.
According to MoMA's website, the self-titled retrospective "draws from more than 20 years of the artist’s daring and innovative projects and her eight full-length albums to chronicle her career through sound, film, visuals, instruments, objects, and costumes." Among the items that will be on display are Björk's exotic instruments, music videos from 1993-present, and costumes, including Iris van Herpen’s famed Biophilia tour dress.
Watch the trailer below, and mark your calendars for March 8 when Björk opens to the public.
