Björk

Björk "The Gate" (Andrew Thomas Huang, dir.)

The Icelandic singer-songwriter’s mesmerizing new video, made in collaboration with Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and artist Andrew Thomas Huang premiering over on Nowness.

“The Gate is essentially a love song, but I say ‘love’ in a more transcendent way. Vulnicura was about a very personal loss, and I think this new album is about a love that’s even greater. It’s about rediscovering love—but in a spiritual way, for lack of a better word.” – Björk, Dazed magazine 

"For the first release from her forthcoming new album, co-produced by Arca, Björk has teamed up with a super-troupe of contributors to create a hallucinogenic new video. Artist Andrew Thomas Huang lends his tech-savvy hand to envision a kaleidoscopic world inhabited by the singer-songwriter, who is clad in an iridescent otherworldly garment designed by Gucci’s Alessandro Michele."

Björk "Mouth Mantra" (Jesse Kanda, dir.)

An endoscope-style camera probably won't even make most cinematographer's preferred gear list, but there's no denying it can take you places you can't possibly fit an Alexa. "Mouth Mantra" starts off where it should — Björk's mouth — before pulling out to showcase a somewhat more traditional visual.

PS: And if you're intrigued, make sure you revisit the Father "Who's Gonna Get" video from earlier this year, which was probably the first video to use an endoscope for get crazy close to an artist.

"Black Lake" Video Previews Björk MoMA Retrospective

Who needs Swan Lake when we're about to get Black Lake?

Björk officially enters the realm of fine art — even though any music video fan already considers her atop the "music video as art" food chain — with a forthcoming retrospective at NYC's prestigous MOMA, and this video to commemorate the occasion.

Based on the preview, we're in for another doozy courtesy of director Andrew Thomas Huang, who previously worked with Bjork on the "Mutual Core" video.

The whole thing will premiere as a sound/video installation at MOMA, when the Björk retrospective opens March 8 and runs through June 7. Visitors will also be able to experience a cinema room showcasing all her videos, plus various instruments and art pieces from her discography, including the robots from her "All Is Full Of Love" video and, of course, the legendary Swan Dress.
