Björk’s Exhibition at MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art presents a retrospective of the multifaceted work of composer, musician, and singer Björk. The exhibition 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. The whole 45 minute tour with poetry and music in my headset was a thrilling experience so  would like to share some of the images from this exhibition.

I’m a fountain of blood in the shape of a woman.

The Swan Dress

Nature is our chapel.

The swan dress is an iconic dress resembling a white swan worn by the Icelandic artist Björk at the 73rd Academy Awards on 25 March 2001 when she was starring in Lars Von Trier’s wonderful film ‘Dancer In the Dark’ – Photo by Reem Saleh

Costumes From Various Music Videos 

I do try and wear stuff by unknown designers, and I make sure I pay because if nothing else I have money.
