Pipilotti Rist produces multi-projector video installations that fuse the corporeal and the spiritual in what have been called near-psychedelic experiences. Her rich vocabulary of sensual experience contrasts the familiar with the strange, teasing out our secret desires. Rist attempts to break down the barriers between public and private space, creating fantastic, pleasure-palace domestic interiors that include video, music, light effects, and furniture. “The idea,” she explains, “is that now we’ve explored the whole geographical world, pictures or films are the new, unexplored spaces into which we can escape.” In 2009 she created Pour Your Body Out, a 25-foot video installation projected in the atrium of the Museum of Modern Art. Visitors were encouraged to take off their shoes and lounge on big comfortable cushions while they experienced the colorful video projected overhead.
