björk: black lake


björk: black lake Black Lake was commissioned by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

It’s difficult to find words to talk about heartbreak, let alone to represent it visually – which is why Björk’s video for “Black Lake” touched so many when it was released in 2015. The video, which was shot in Iceland over three days by Andrew Thomas Huang, with the help of visual effects studio Wolf & Crow, depicted Björk crouched in a womb-like Icelandic cave, slowly fighting her way through the blackness to rejoin the world outside. This is proper heartbreak music: Björk wrote the album Vulnicura, from which “Black Lake” was taken, after the breakdown of her relationship with artist Matthew Barney. The ten-minute music video was premiered at Björk’s 2015 retrospective at the MoMA, and shown in a specially commissioned screening room.
