Pipilotti Rist at the Tate Modern

Pipilotti Rist, Sip My Ocean, 1996

Swiss video art pioneer Pipilotti Rist will be giving a talk at the Tate Modern on Thursday (17/11) at 18:30 when she will discuss her work with the aid of screen samples. Rist's 'digital utopias captivate, float and shimmer with saturated colour and animated camerawork, just as they reveal the darker dimension of their own desires and aspirations', says Tate. Rist is a bid admirer of video clips and she often resorts to their visual grammar to compose her own feminist works. The event coincides with the opening of Rist's show at the Hauser & Wirth gallery, between 16 November and 17 December.
