Pipilotti Rist: Your Eye Is My Island
Aug 7 at 10:00 am - Oct 17 at 6:00 pm¥900
Pipilotti Rist is a Swiss visual artist has explored experimental video expression since the 1980s. Based in Switzerland, Rist has been invited to present her work at museums and biennales around the world.
Rist’s video installations, which feature humorous snatches of images depicting a realm of vivid color, sensorially stimulating music and comforting spatial design, have attracted audiences of all ages from all over the world. This exhibition consists of about 40 works dealing with themes such as the body, gender, nature, and ecology. Functioning as a complete overview of Rist’s approximately 30-year career, the retrospective encompasses everything from the artist’s early short videos focusing on the female body and identity; the recent large-scale installations, which gently extols a symbiosis between nature and humans on a panoramic screen; living room like installations where videos co-inhabit the miscellaneous goods and furniture; and the recirculating of everyday objects into artworks that have been consistent in Rist’s practice since the 1980s.
This exhibition will provide an opportunity for viewers to gradually unravel the serious themes of contemporary society through works which invite viewers to enjoy a playful visual experience through their own actions.
