Fra poche settimane il MoMA di New York presenterà una grande retrospettiva dedicata al lavoro multiforme della cantante, compositrice e musicista Björk.
L’esposizione, che si svolgerà dall’8 Marzo al 7 Giugno, sicuramente sarà una fantastica immersione musicale e visiva in molte declinazioni della creatività. La mostra sarà suddivisa fra strumenti, rappresentazioni teatrali, esperienze sonore coinvolgenti, il tutto gestito con una guida audio mirata al percorso di visita.
La mostra attinge alla sua lunga carriera, sempre in continua sperimentazione e ricerca, sia nei suoi album che nella grande collaborazione con registi, fotografi, designer, artisti e altri professionisti originali e sperimentali. L’intero progetto trova compimento in un progetto musicale coinvolgente commissionato da MoMA stesso per l’evento.
La mostra è ideata e organizzata da Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large del MoMA e Direttore del MoMA PS1, ed è reso possibile da una partnership con Volkswagen of America.
MoMA presents Björk, a retrospective dedicated to the multifaceted work of the singer, composer, and musician, from March 8 to June 7, 2015. Björk offers an experience of music in many layers, with instruments, a theatrical presentation, an immersive sound experience, a focused audio guide, and related visualizations—from photography and music videos to new media works. The exhibition draws from more than 20 years of the artist's daring and innovative career, beginning with her eight full-length albums and multiple collaborations with directors, photographers, designers, artists, and other experimental practitioners, and culminating in a new, immersive music and film experience commissioned by MoMA. The exhibition is conceived and organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large at MoMA and Director of MoMA PS1, and is made possible by a partnership with Volkswagen of America.
The product of a close collaboration between Mr. Biesenbach and Björk, the exhibition brings together a chronology of sounds, videos, objects, instruments, costumes, and images that express the artist's overarching project: her music. Chronologically, the exhibition begins with the release of Björk's first mature solo album, Debut, in 1993, and proceeds through her career up to her most recent work in 2015, including a new video and music installation commissioned especially for the Museum, Black Lake (which also appears on her new album, Vulnicura).
Mr. Biesenbach states: "An uncompromisingly original and highly accomplished auteur and solo artist in her composing, singing, and music, Björk is notably open to collaboration and interpretation of her work, extending even into education and audience participation. Over the decades she has also developed a highly collaborative practice to visualize and express her music and lyrics. Working with photographers, film- and video-makers, designers, architects, craftsmen, and inventors, she crosses over into all categories of high and low culture, digital and analog, into most creative fields."
