Icelandic singer and songwriter Björk is controversial. And so is her exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York.
We went early at the MOMA to collect our special entry tickets to the exhibition area. I had mixed feelings of what we will find behind the thick curtains leading towards the exhibits. Upon entrance we were handed an iPod with narratives on a light music background and were told to walk through the dark corridors at a slow pace and listen carefully as Björk herself tells the story behind each of her eight albums. So we put our headsets on, pressed Play, and entered Björk’s world: Quite eccentric, completely revolutionary, but above all – very personal.
The walk-through took us about 40 minutes. I have to admit, I was never a huge fan of Björk. But this exhibition made me see her and her work in a completely fresh and new perspective.
If you happen to pass by the MOMA, I strongly recommend you to check out the Björk exhibition (until June 7, 2015). It is worth the experience.
