Björk's 'Post' Re-Covered
Artwork for the RE COVER
exhibition at Pop Up Galerie, Paris. The exhibition was organised by Ben's illustration agents in France, La Suite
, who asked each artist to choose a classic album sleeve and 'Re Cover' it, taking inspiration from the original but adding our own illustrative styles. Ben chose Björk's 'Post' album from 1995, which was a great inspiration at the time. We used the creation process as an opportunity to take ourselves back to that inspiration and rediscover the emotion and passion within the album all over again, putting it into artwork now, almost 20 years later.
You'll see two versions of the artwork here, the version with 2 Björks was an experiment inspired by the varying loudness and quietness you can find in this album (perhaps shown best in the track 'It's Oh So Quiet'). This initial version has a loud and quiet side, and could be hung either way up, even down to the ambigram 'Bjork' type. We decided however that this version had strayed too much from being a 'Re Cover' of the original sleeve artwork, so moved on to something that gave the audience a far clearer view of which album cover it was!
