MEDULLA BY BJöRK AT LA MONNAIE / THE OPERA HOUSE IN BRUSSELS, COSTUMES AND SET DESIGN BY HENRIK VIBSKOV

 

‘What happened before we got involved in problematic things like civilization, religion and nationhood ?’ In her conceptual album Medúlla, Icelandic artist Björk returns to a pagan universe that is entirely human. Björk’s composition for a cappella voices explores a huge array of vocal techniques, from throat-singing and choruses to beatboxing and pop harmonies. Released in 2004, the album was her reaction to counter the outbreaks of racism and neo-nationalism after the 9/11 attacks. A decade later, an ensemble of singers representing different generations – children and youth choirs next to senior opera singers – unites to redefine in meditative images what Björk named ‘medúlla’ – ‘an ancient spirit that’s passionate and dark, a spirit that survives’ – the basic element of human condition that unites us all, despite different beliefs, origins, nations and ages.

  3. I like the way she uses colors and how she combines them to create new patterns or images. Her paintings reminds me of nature because they have an abstract shape and color, but at the same time they are very realistic.
