London residents will be treated to an unprecedented multimedia exhibition this autumn, with Björk taking centre stage.
TimeOut London reports that on September 1, the artist will be taking up a “digital residence” of sorts in London.
Running for two months at Somerset House, ‘Björk Digital’ is a snazzy multimedia exhibition and virtual reality project that’s never been seen in Europe before. Using music from Björk’s last album ‘Vulnicura’, it includes an immersive two-screen film called ‘Black Lake’, as well as a series of 360-degree VR videos. You’ll be able to strap on a pair of goggles and witness the singer performing alone on a windswept beach in Iceland, or listen to her sing ‘Mouthmantra’ while sitting inside her actual mouth: presumably the most intimate Björk show anyone will ever experience.
While parts of this exhibition will include material featured at Björk’s MoMA exhibition last year, “[b]y the time it lands in London it’ll feature even more as-yet-unseen visuals – including the latest version of ‘Notget’, which transforms Björk into a giant, interactive, sparkly firefly creature.”
In addition, Björk will also be holding a concert at the Royal Albert Hall on September 21. The Björk Digital exhibition will run until October 23.
