Born in Iceland within a hippie community with an Inuit background, Björk founds a punk group, KUKL, in 1983 before tuning it into a pop band, in 1987 under the name, The Sugarcubes. Soon, the group earns international recognition and Björk attracts the attention of the audiences and media before she decides to pursue a solo career, from 1993. Her indefinable musical style oscillates between traditional Icelandic airs, trip hop, rock and reggae, the whole carried by her powerful voice. In 2000, she stars in Lars Von Trier's film, Dancer in the Dark opposite Catherine Deneuve but affirms it would remain her last role, not standing the sadness of her character and the harsh relationship she encountered with the director. Collaborating with avant-garde artists and her husband Matthew Barney as well as conceptual fashion designers such as Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan, Björk managed to make of her difference an experimental exploration of what the future could look like.
