Bjoerk is a contemporary icon whose contributions to music, video,
film, fashion and art have influenced a generation worldwide. Here,
now, is the ultimate celebration of this multimillion-selling
superstar. Designed by top design studio M/M (Paris) as a slipcased
world of wonders, this publication - which accompanies spring's
exhibition on Bjoerk at The Museum of Modern Art - is composed of
six parts: four booklets, a paperback and a poster. Each booklet
contains illustrated texts by, respectively, Klaus Biesenbach, Alex
Ross, Nicola Dibben and Timothy Morton, while the poster features
artwork of Bjoerk's albums and singles. The main book focuses on
her seven major albums - Debut, Post, Homogenic, Vespertine,
Medulla, Volta and Biophilia - and the personas created for each
one. Poetic texts by longtime collaborator, Icelandic poet Sjon,
are accompanied by shots of Bjoerk performing live; multiple stills
from music videos made by directors including Michel Gondry, Chris
Cunningham and Spike Jonze; images of Bjoerk in breathtaking
costumes by designers such as Alexander McQueen and Hussein
Chalayan; and shots by star photographers such as Nan Goldin,
Juergen Teller, Stephane Sednaoui, Inez van Lamsweerde &
Vinoodh Matadin, and Araki. All combine to form an extraordinary
visual masterpiece, celebrating the magical world of Bjoerk.
