Icelandic performance and video artist Ragnar Kjartansson has announced Death Is Everywhere, a new immersive video installation featuring two sets of musical twins: The National’s Bryce and Aaron Dessner and Múm’s Kristín Anna and Gyða Valtýsdóttir. According to a press release, the 77-minute “seven-channel video installation” involves both sets of twins performing the titular song in a pastoral setting where they “seem to encircle the viewer.” The installation, dedicated to the late Carolee Schneemann, is on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City from May 30 through September 2.
Bryce Dessner recently released a classical album, El Chan. On May 17, the National will release their next album I Am Easy to Find. Read Pitchfork’s Family Matters interview “The National Are a Band of Brothers—But Not Like Oasis.”
