Pipilotti Rist – Gravity, Be My Friend
Pipilotti Rist is one of the most prominent artists working today, best known for her dream-like video installations and colour-drenched imagery. Probing both physical and psychological dimensions her exploration of the body, our senses, rituals and taboos are at once poetical, intimate and playfully entertaining. The exhibition will include work that is central to Rist’s production including the title-piece Tyngdkraft, var min vän (Gravity, Be My Friend) – a new large-scale audiovisual installation being specially produced for Magasin 3. The title refers both to the events in the film and the viewer’s experience of the piece.
In conjunction with the exhibition Magasin 3 is producing a catalogue in collaboration with Lars Müller Publishers allowing the reader to listen in on a private conversation between Pipilotti Rist and Richard Julin, the curator of the exhibition.
