Bjork Previews "Black Lake" Video Installation Ahead of Her MoMA Show



Bjork's much-anticipated MoMA retrospective opens March 8th, and ahead of its launch, the museum has just released this trailer for a short film included in the show by Andrew Thomas Huang. The clip, made for the grief-choked breakup opus "Black Lake" on Bjork's recent album Vulnicura, shows Bjork split in two by a chasm, fluid oozing down her and filling the space. If you haven't gotten around to getting high and listening to Vulnicura yet, "Black Lake," as well as the rest of the album, is about Bjork's split from partner Matthew Barney, with whom she has a daughter. Some select lyrics from the track: " You betrayed your own heart / Corrupted that organ /Family was always our sacred mutual mission /Which you abandoned  /You have nothing to give / Your heart is hollow." Happy Valentine's Day, everyone.
