Recently Björk sat down to interview herself for W Magazine. It went quite well. In fact, it is full on insight that would probably have been missed in any other format.
Below fans can find snippets from the full interview via W Magazine.
“i feel in this time of trump it is a necessity to have a plan, a manifesto, an alternative. it’s a question of life and death for our species. as a musician i feel i can suggest the musical poetic angle which is that after tragedies one has to invent a new world, knit it or embroider, make it up. it’s not gonna be given to you because you deserve it, it doesn’t work that way. you have to imagine something that doesn’t exist and dig a cave into the future and demand space. it’s a territorial hope affair. at the time, that digging is utopian but in the future it will become your reality.
what is your favorite ritual?
i think the mornings are the most precious ones. they can be most magic but also the hardest ones if you get them wrong. to remain fluid but gently open to changes or different people and include everyone. the evenings are easier because then you have all the ingredients of the day and its easier to guess what will go down well or what element is lacking.
how important is the sexual force to you?
extremely. it is what drives you, i think obviously it is not literally only in sex but it is vital to include it into the choreography of all things.
how does one fuel vibrancy in life?
listen to yourself. allow space to be heard. do what turns you on most.
can you unite sex and love?
how vulnerable do you feel one should leave oneself to remain vibrant?
ha, ha, ha, ha, i must have been very sleepy at that point ha, ha, ha, ha i feel it’s a constant balancing act, to remain open enough but also not to implode. to keep a skeletal structure but stay open chested.
the challenge of a lifetime…”
