Pipilotti Rist

October 2018—October 2019

Swiss visual artist and filmmaker Pipilotti Rist (b. 1962) is known for her innovative, engrossing video works and multimedia installations. For many of her projects she assumes the roles of director, producer, composer, and star—together conceiving a practice that reflects her varied interests in human emotion, female sexuality, psychology, music, and her own body. Her works encourage viewers to reconcile the duality, and often conflict, between what they see and how they feel. The surreal Ever Is Over All, 1997, is composed with the intent of relaxing the viewer with playful music while showcasing a shocking yet joyful act of repeated vandalism. This work was on view in Room 6 during the inaugural installation of works in the Pavilions.
