Style Icon Bjork Is Honored this March at the Museum of Modern Art
Björk Guðmundsdóttir, commonly known as Bjork is a 49-year-old legend, not only when it comes to her music, but also to her fashion sense.
Born in Island and with the current residence in New York, Bjork is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and actress.
She has become step by step over the years a legendary name in the music industry and she recently released her ninth studio album “Vulnicura” on iTunes on 20 January for which she worked with the Venezuelan producer Arca, a collaborator of Kanye West and FKA Twigs.
But what’s even more interesting about her is the way she combines her clothes with her music and manages to create a tripping artistic experience.
Definitely not a trend follower, that’s actually what makes her stand out and be an one-of-a-kind style icon. From the memorable swan dress she wore at the 2001 Oscars, to the futuristic outfit worn on the artwork for her latest album, she definitely made a statement.
And perhaps not many of you know this, but Bjork is a silent temporarily partner of many fashion designers, especially Alexander McQueen and she not only wears their clothes, but she actually collaborates with them.
Anyways, one thing is certain though. Bjork expresses her music through fashion which ultimately makes her own being a work of art.
And the art scene of New York not only noticed her, but adore her unique style and they’re going to honor her at the Museum of Modern Art starting this month where they’re going to present a retrospective of Bjork’s lifetime work.
The exhibition is going to feature the artist’s over 20 years of unique projects and they’re going to honor her entire career with her music, visuals, instruments and costumes.
The entire museum is going to be organized to literally take you on a journey through Bjork’s life in the spotlight starting with the Museum lobby where you’ll find instruments used on Biophilia(2011).
On the second floor, two spaces have been specially designed: one dedicated to the “Black Lake” song from her latest album and the second one is actually a cinema room displaying a Bjork retrospective in music videos.
Finally, the third floor is going to offer the ultimate audio experience of Bjork’s albums with a biographical narrative written by Icelandic writer Sjón. And to make the best of the interactive space, the floor will be filled with visuals, costumes, her iconic fashion moments – Marian Pejoski’s Swan Dress and Iris van Herpen’s Biophilia tour dress.
And the main piece of the last floor, believe it or not, you’ll even find the robots designed by Chris Cunningham from “All Is Full of Love” music video!
The exhibition will fill the floors of the Museum of Modern Art from 8 March to 7 June, so make sure you’re not going to miss it for anything in the world!
