Bjork adds to her artistic bow with MoMA debut

Idiosyncratic singer Bjork has never shied away from pushing the boundaries of her artistic expression. Following on from two decades of adventurous musical experimentation and bold fashion statements, comes her first foray into the art world.

The exhibition showcases the singer and composer’s multifaceted work providing a multisensory feast, that Bjork herself has characterised as a “journey”.

Attendees are invited to enter into Bjork’s ethereal world via a rabbit warren of small rooms displaying quintessential costumes, deeply personal, some say jarring diaries and her famous album covers.

Presenting collaborations with fashion icons such as Alexander McQueen whose voluminous bell dress appears in the “Who Is It? ” video and Spike Jonze’s retrotastic “It’s Oh So Quiet” have sparked a 90’s nostalgia.

Accompanying the visual displays is a musical soundtrack derived from her eight full-length albums, that determines the flow of moving between the rooms.

The avant-garde artist’s involvement in the show has courted controversy, with reviewers questioning the singer’s tight control over her image and legacy.

The show offers only one brand-new piece – a 10-minute video visualizing the song “Black Lake” off Bjork’s latest album, “Vulnicura” that chronicles her breakup with her longtime lover, the acclaimed artist-world Matthew Barney.

So, would you like to see the Bjork retrospective hit our shores?

Must-have Summer Essentials

Next week marks the beginning of November and hot on it’s heels is – you guessed it – Summer. But before you grab your beach bag and run out the door to indulge in all that sunshine, ask yourself, are you ready?

No one can deny that as the weather heats up, so do the social outings and commitments: beach, bars, festivals, concerts and lots other outdoor frivolity. But as clothes come off there is a lot more preparation and care needed and oh so little time to do it in.

We know were certainly not as prepared for summer as we would like, so in the meantime we thought we would compile a list of our favourite pre-summer essentials that will make Summer a breeze and lots of fun – which let’s face it, is what it always should be!

Summer: sun, sand and surf…sounds like bliss for most, but not for your hair.

Use it in the shower under running water or if your locks need some extra treatment, simply brush through your conditioner or treatment to work product through every strand. The patented teeth will also give your head a massage in the process, bliss!
