Cat Velez - 11th June 2015

Originally commissioned and premiered at the Museum of Modern Art, New York as part of the Björk retrospective that ended on June 7th, this epic, ten-minute video for Björk's Black Lake by her regular collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang has finally been released online.

It features a raw, candid performance by the ever-captivating Björk, enhanced by the rugged backdrop of her native Iceland's natural wonders. Caves, molten blue lava, and desolate green meadows assist in the pained expression conveyed by an ardent performance.
