Björk is bringing her previously reported virtual reality exhibition to London, coinciding with a live performance at the Royal Albert Hall in September. The exhibition will take up residence at Somerset House in London from 1 Sep to 23 Oct.

Announcing the news, the musician said on her website: “I am so excited to invite you all to [the] ‘Björk Digital’ exhibition at Somerset House. We are showing the virtual reality videos from ‘Vulnicura’ on dozens of headsets and premiering in London some pleasant surprises”.

“This is a further step into completing the full ‘Vulnicura’ VR album which will come out soon”, she added. “I feel the chronological narrative of the album is ideal for the private circus virtual reality is. A theatre able to capture the emotional landscape of it, I’ve put importance in the exhibition on the interactive element, that folks can watch ‘Vulnicura’ on VR and try [app-based album] ‘Biophilia’ with iPads”.

She will also appear in actual reality at the Royal Albert Hall on 23 Oct, backed by an actual real orchestra. Tickets go on sale this Friday.

‘Björk Digital’ opened in Sydney last month before transferring to Tokyo.
