The art of Bjork
20 July 2002 | by (Utrecht, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

It's becoming more and more clear to me that Bjork is not just a clever popstar. With every solo album she releases, the enigma around her music becomes bigger and as the medium of videoclips has always been very important, each promo she makes is a treat for the eye and mind. For her latest album, Vespertine, one of the songs that stand out is Pagan Poetry, a song about an obsessive love. The video for it shows us snippets of flesh being pierced with needles, threads with pearls on them, followed by images, digitally altered, so you can only see the outlines of what is happening. This video was censored for day-time television, because of the piercing-scenes and as it features several shots where Bjork can be seen topless. It would be the same as if Picasso's Demoiselles d'Avignon would be censored for it's nudity. Well, actually it was, in the time Picasso painted it. What Bjork shows us here is a deep insight into her mind, the tragedy of love, in a way that cannot be tagged as popmusic. Bjork seems to grow further and further from it, she's becoming a living piece of art.
