The Museum of Modern Art just announced that they will be doing a full-scale retrospective dedicated to the career of everyone's favorite Icelandid composer, singer and artist, Björk. The exhibition is being organized by the museum's chief curator, Klaus Biesenbach and will run from March 7th - June 7th, 2015. “Bjork is an extraordinarily innovative artist whose contributions to contemporary music, video, film, fashion and art have had a major impact on her generation worldwide,” Mr. Biesenbach said in a statement. “This highly experimental exhibition offers visitors a direct experience of her hugely collaborative body of work.”

The person singing underneath that crazy, incredible looking headpiece is Bjork. Surprised? Probably not, if you showed us a picture of a woman singing in a crazy outfit that would probably be our first guess too. The headpiece though, was designed by Maiko Takeda and is one of a series of similar pieces entitled Atmospheric Reentry. Maiko grew up in Tokyo and moved to London to study Jewelry Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. She is currently working on her Masters in Millinery at the Royal College of Art.

We had a little fun with Michel Gondry earlier this year with our interview with the director and Petit Gondry photoshoot. Today, we just saw that Mr. Gondry directed this fantastic new video for Björk and the track "Crystalline," that will appear on the Icelandic artist's newest album, Biophilia, that will be released on September 26.

This article on Michel Gondry was no exception. More after the jump . . .
