Check Out Photos From The Björk Retrospective At MOMA

Take a sneak peek at the signer’s career spanning exhibition before it opens to the public this Saturday. 

Having dropped her eighth studio album, the Arca and Haxan Cloak featuring ‘Vulnicura’, in January, Björk is to keep the momentum going by being the subject of an exhibition at New York’s prestigious Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). Starting this Saturday 8th March and running until 7th June, the exhibtion, ‘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.’

Featured at the exhibition are a series of bespoke instruments made for 2011’s ‘Biophilia’, ‘an interactive, location-based audio experience’ which takes visitors through Björk’s albums via mixture of narrative, visuals and audio, and a specially commissioned film named after ‘Vulnicura’ centrepiece ‘Black Lake’. Ahead of the official opening on Saturday, Guardian photographer Tom Pietrasik was granted access. Scroll down to check out his striking photos of the exhibition, whilst bearing in mind that those are Björk mannequins – not the real deal.
