Yesterday the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) announced that they will present a full-scale retrospective dedicated to the work of musician, composer and artist Björk. Curated by Klaus Biesenback, the show will chronicle the multifaceted artist’s life trough performances, costumes, instruments, objects, films and music - from her first album “Debut” in 1993 to “Biophilia” in 2011.
The installations will present a narrative, both biographical and imaginatively fictitious, co-written by Björk and the highly-acclaimed Icelandic writer Sjón Sigurdsson. Björk’s collaboration with video directors, photographers, fashion designers, and artists will also be featured.
According to the curator, the Björk exhibition is highly experimental and will offer visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work. The museum also announced that they will include/introduce - for the first time ever - an App to accompany particular exhibition. “Biophilioa” was launched in 2011 by Björk and her record label One Little Indian - a unique hybrid between an App and a music album with interactive graphics, animation, and musical scoring.
The Björk exhibition will be shown from March 7 through June 7, 2015 at the MoMa in New York.
