Bjork’s Retrospective At MoMA



Icelandic singer Bjork will have her own retrospective as part of a multimedia show at New York’s Museum of Modern Arts. It will include instruments, music, costumes and film, in order to present her 21 years as a solo performer.

The “full-scale” installation will include a “narrative” co-written by the performer and will peak in an “immersive music and film experience“.

The exhibition, which is organized by Klaus Biesenbach, MoMA’s chief curator at large, will be open from March 7 to June 7.

Bjork is an extraordinarily innovative artist whose contributions to contemporary music, video, film, fashion and art have had a major impact on her generation worldwide,” said Biesenbach’s statement.

This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work.

Real name Bjork Gudmundsdottir, Bjork was born in 1965. She singer first found fame as a member of the Sugarcubes, before deciding to pursue a solo career.

The 48-year old star has released seven full-length albums, including Debut in 1993, Homogenic in 1997, and her most recent release, Biophilia in 2011.

She has also worked on the 2000 film Dancer in the Dark, for which she won a best actress award at the Cannes Film Festival.

In 2012, the mother of two revealed she had undergone a successful surgery to remove a polyp on her vocal cords.
