Meetup Description: Elixir: The Video Organism Of Rist
March 7 - May[masked]

Modern art has its detractors, and truth be told, I?m not always enamored either by abstract configurations. There?s nothing abstract about this exhibit, however. It?s about sensations. It?s about all-enveloping colours, sounds and shapes in motion. A sheer spectacle that is a total experience for the senses. Tangible and real, like architecture or natural phenomena such as clouds or tornados.

The enchanting world of video artist Pipilotti Rist (1962) can be seen at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen from 7 March. Pipilotti Rist has designed a system of transparent walls that lead the visitor through the video works. These include ?Tyngdkraft, var min v?n? (Gravity Be My Friend), ?Homo Sapiens Sapiens? and ?A Liberty Statue for L?nd?n?, among others. The soundtracks ? music and sounds composed by the artist in collaboration with Anders Guggisberg ? complete Rist?s dream world.

Total Sensory Experience
Whether in intimate video works and objects or monumental museum installations, Pipilotti Rist transforms the visual spectacle into a total sensory experience. The exhibition at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen will include a new installation, which is linked with the material of her first long feature film ?Pepperminta? (release end of summer 2009). The first installation of this new cycle was designed for the atrium of the Museum of Modern Art New York. The shooting took place in Switzerland, Vienna/AT and in the Noordoostpolder/NL. She also creates a permanent video work in one of the monumental staircases of the museum in collaboration with H+F Patronage.
