Vernissage TV “Pipilotti Rist Retrospective at Kunsthaus Zürich” (2016)
I saw this show, titled “Your Saliva is my Diving Suit in the Ocean of Pain”, when I was in Zürich in February. I’d never heard of the artist prior to my museum visit, but I quite enjoyed the show. It was a peek into an endlessly creative mind. Rist primarily works with video. The exhibit contains twenty years worth of videos and installations featuring dioramas, mini cameras, seashells, purses, and more. Important themes were the body, feminism, sexuality, and identity. My favorite piece was the Pixelwald (Pixel Forest), a beautiful set of hanging LED lights that changes color continuously (and apparently is supposed to be a blown up series of images). The show ends on May 8.
