Björk has been touring around the world throughout the year with Björk Digital, an exhibition of digital, video, and virtual reality collaborations made to coincide with her latest album Vulnicura. Last month, she brought her virtual reality exhibition to Tokyo and today, she has announced that she is taking the project to the UK.
The exhibition will run at London’s Somerset House from September 1st to October 23rd. It’s described in a release as a “private theatrical experience”, inviting visitors to engage with her work through virtual reality technology. It will include immersive VR videos from Vulnicura songs including “Black Lake”, “Stonemilker”, “Mouth Mantra” and “Notget”. Excitingly, as part of the European premiere, Björk will also perform live at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday September 21st, her only UK headline show this year and her first since headlining Alexandra Palace in 2013.
In addition, Somerset House will also be hosting additional never-before-seen work from Björk as well as an interactive educational space showcasing apps and custom-made musical instruments from her previous album Biophilia, as well as a programme of her videos from throughout her 24-year career.
