Pipilotti Rist: Sip my Ocean
140 George Street, The Rocks, NSW, 2000, Australia
1st November 2017 to 18th February 2018
Walk through a forest of hanging lights, get lost in a maze of floating fabric or lay back on a bed and watch the ceiling morph above you. Over the past 30 years, Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist has achieved international acclaim as one of the pioneers of experimental video art and multimedia installations. Incorporating video and sculpture, her dazzling environments plunge viewers into colourful kaleidoscopic projections which explore the relationship between nature, the body and technology. The exhibition "Pipilotti Rist: Sip my Ocean" presents the spectrum of Rist’s groundbreaking practice, from her early single-channel videos of the 1980s to her large-scale audio-visual installations and recent immersive environments. Her work is an ode to the heart and the intellect, to the big emotions that sustain us as human beings and to the beauty of the world and the universe around us. This will be the most comprehensive exhibition of Rist’s work in Australia to date. Part of the Sydney International Art Series.
