Björk: Black Lake

Exploring the experimental timeline of Björk's multi-faceted career, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is soon to host a retrospective spanning the Icelandic auteur's 20 years as a visionary musician and artist.

Acting as a teaser for the exhibition, a 10-minute visual collaboration between the singer and LA filmmaker Andrew Thomas Huang has been unveiled, described as, "an immersive music and film experience". Huang also directed Björk's elaborately mesmerising video for "Mutual Core" (Biophilia, 2011).

The trailer doesn't really reveal too much, except for a scantily clad Björk covered in ferns, fading in from the darkness to the intro of "Black Lake" (taken from her latest album "Vulnicura") - it does however focus on the singer as the centrepiece of the video installation, set to the themes of pain, perishing, and rebirth. 

Watch below.

Björk will be on view at the MoMA from March 8th to June 7th, 2015. For more info, head HERE.
