Inez + Vinoodh - Vulnicura


Björk sent a beautiful video of a spider molting out of its own skin and becoming translucent, and then filling up with color again. For her, that was really the basis of the imagery around this album, this transformation and soft, waxy, yellow-pink coloring—and again, the idea of having emotions circling around her. She said she wanted to have a wound on her body, on her heart area, in an abstract way. From there, we worked with our stylist Mel Ottenberg on the character, and that’s when he found this black latex suit and the headpiece by a Japanese designer [Maiko Takeda], which she’d already worn once on stage. We constructed her persona with her on set—imagine you’re Mata Hari, a seductress, but you’re wounded, and there is an incredibly alluring softness around you. When we were photographing her, I said ‘Why don’t we pick a song and film you performing it, and see where that leads,’ just like we did with Moon. We filmed her as she performed Lion’s Song, off the album, and now we’re in the process of creating the edit and post-production for that video which will hopefully come out around summertime.”
