Artist Björk Guðmundsdóttir, in a new radio interview, was reportedly baffled by how little a role environmental issues played in the 2016 parliamentary campaign.
“I have always been outside of party politics, and will continue to be so,” she said. “I think my energy is best used in being green. Parties come and go, but I am first and foremost a musician. If I need to get involved in some issue or politics, then I intend to be outside of political parties and speak for environmentalism.”
Björk will be opening a new exhibition, Björk Digital, at Harpa tomorrow, and will also be performing two concerts during the Iceland Airwaves music festival; one on Saturday, and the other the following Tuesday.
