Londres, du 1er septembre au 23 octobre 2016

Londres est la première ville européenne à accueillir l’exposition Björk Digital, dans le musée Somerset House, situé à l’Est de Waterllo Bridge, sur les bords de la Tamise.

La version finale de la vidéo de Quicksand en VR (tournée au Miraikan) a été présentée en avant-première.

 

À cette occasion, deux concerts 100% acoustiques ont été donnés au Royal Albert Hall et à l’Eventim Apollo.

« i am so excited to invite you all to björk digital exhibition at somerset house . we are showing the virtual reality videos from vulnicura on dozens of headsets and premiering in london some pleasant surprises .... this is a further step into completing the full vulnicura vr album which will come out soon .
i feel the chronological narrative of the album is ideal for the private circus virtual reality is . a theatre able to capture the emotional landscape of it
ive put importance in the exhibition on the interactive element , that folks can watch vulnicura on vr and try biophilia w ipads
i am also very happy to tell you that i will be singing in royal albert hall on the autumn equinox with vulnicuras string arrangements played by an orchestra . i know . it is bragging . spoiled brat .

extrait de la conférence de presse

« i am gratefully announcing the opening of björk : digital london .

here are some photos from the press conference where i appeared via live stream motion capture avatar from iceland ( thousand miles away ! )

we have 4 VR videos ready and will be adding one in each city we go to , hopefully completing the album this year choosing various warehouses and galleries that exhibit work from all disciplines . i am very happy w being the pop musician i am and feel VR is a natural continuity of the pop video .

technology is enabling women to work outside the already formed hierarchical systems . the laptop arriving 1999 gave me a personal studio to make vespertine , the touchscreen 2006 helped me map my own idiosyncratic musicology outside the classical canon and reconnect it w nature and make biophilia , VR is helping making a new stage free of politics where sound and vision is swirling free in 360 fully liberated . i found vulnicura a helpful material to work in VR because of its old fashioned heartbreak saga , the narration in it is the most stubborn of my albums so i felt it could take on the experimentation of where VR is now . benefitted from 2016-ing it . and because of vulnicuras one singular selfpitying voice to work with many directors gave it more point of views.

i appreciate that your curiousity is still there after all these years

dont take it for granted

and thank my couragous team
