Björk engages with and influences almost every form of contemporary visual and musical culture. She studied music from an early age, made her first album at the age of eleven and formed several punk bands before forming The Sugarcubes in 1987. When they split in 1992, she went on to collaborate with Nellee Hooper on Debut, a distinctive and highly successful solo album, which was followed by Post in 1995 and the bolder, more experimental Homogenic in 1997. In 2001 Vespertine marked her departure from collaborative work towards what she describes as a more 'curatorial' and 'adult' approach. Björk is committed to working with cutting edge practitioners and has collaborated with fashion designers Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan, photographers Nick Knight, Stephane Sedanoui and Nobuyoshi Araki, the filmmaker Chris Cunningham and musicians Tricky and Evelyn Glennie, among many others. In 2000, she was awarded Best Actress by the Cannes Film Festival jury for her role in Lars Von Trier's controversial film Dancer in the Dark, which itself received the Palm D'Or. Bjork collaborated with her husband, performance artist Matthew Barney, on recent film project Drawing Restraint 9.
