Pipilotti Rist’s Immersive Colour
Swiss artist Popilotti Rist’s latest work, The Tender Room, envelops visitors in coloured light created by projected video and coloured window panes. The installation attempts to create a warm and inviting space through the often cold medium of media art.
Produced specifically for the space, Rist’s exhibition extends into the bathrooms of the public space, where she has installed Solution For Man and Solution For Woman – two complementary video artworks mounted on the rooms’ ceilings.
Challenging how we react to colour, light and architecture, the exhibition centres around the emotional state of visitors. “In the end, the meaning of this room is the story of what people do there,” says the artist. "I like to create environments where visitors are the most important element.”
The Tender Room will be exhibited until July 31 in the Wexner Center for the Arts in Ohio.
