Björk’s grammy nominated ‘Biophilia Live’ is a concert film directed by Peter Strickland and Nick Fenton and produced by Jacqui Edenbrow that captures the human element of Björk’s multi-disciplinary multimedia project: Biophilia. Recorded live at Björk’s show at London’s Alexandra Palace in 2013, the film features Björk and her band performing every song on ‘Biophilia’ and more using a broad variety of instruments – some digital, some traditional, and some completely unclassifiable. The film has already been hailed as “a captivating record of an artist in full command of her idiosyncratic powers” (Variety) and “an imaginative stand-alone artwork” (Hollywood Reporter) and is a vital piece of the grand mosaic that is ‘Biophilia.’
Biophilia is the sort of ‘grand’ project that an artist – even an artist as singular as Björk – likely attempts only once in a lifetime. She said so herself in When Björk Met Attenborough, which is something like the ‘making of’ to the artwork proper that is Biophilia.
