Björk: Black Lake

10.06.2015 | Music | BY:

Björk’s latest video for Black Lake, is a ten-minute-long film in which we find the Icelandic musician in a bleak landscape. It first debuted earlier this year, as the short was commissioned by New York City’s Museum of Modern Art for their Björk retrospective.

“I guess its time for Stonemilker and Black Lake to get out there into the world after a three month stint in a museum,” stated Björk. “We tried to make it in a way it was both at home there and also as a no nonsense music video (still my fav format) and I hope you don’t mind the wait.”

Created by award winning director Andrew Thomas Huang, along with choreographer Erna Ómarsdóttir, cinematographer Lasse Frank, and art directors Thorgeir Odinsson and Iris van Herpen, the video carries themes of pain, perishing, and rebirth.

Black Lake is the latest taken from Björk’s ninth studio album Vulnicura, which you can purchase here.
