Bjork announces London virtual reality exhibition and concert

The gig will be Bjork’s first non-festival UK show for three years

Bjork has announced her interactive virtual reality exhibition is coming to the UK for two months from September.

Previously on display in Australia and Japan, Digital will be on display at London’s Somerset House from September 1 to October 23.

Halfway through the exhibition, Bjork will also play at London’s Royal Albert Hall on September 21. Other than her headline appearances at the festivals Wilderness and Manchester International, the gig will be Bjork’s first UK show for three years.

Tickets for Digital are £15, on sale now from Somerset House’s website, while Royal Albert Hall tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday.

Digital exhibits include a two-screen immersive video for Black Lake directed by Andrew Thomas Huang, a second film by Huang for Stonemilker and Jesse Kanda’s video Mouthmantra, which sees Bjork sing while sat inside her own mouth.

Nick Thornton Jones and Warren Du Preez’s film Notget sees Bjork transformed into a giant fiery moth with the aid of special masks created by artist James Merry.

The exhibition, most of whose videos are presented in 360-degree Virtual Reality, documents Bjork’s 2015 album ‘Vulnicura’. Bjork released an accompanying album, ‘Vulnicura Strings’, which removes the original’s beats to be replaced by an orchestra, Una Sveinbjarnadottir’s violin and Bjork’s string arrangements.
