Marking the launch of Tai Kwun Contemporary’s 2022 summer exhibition Behind Your Eyelid—Pipilotti Rist, this upcoming edition of Tai Kwun Conversations features Pipilotti Rist, in conversation with Tobias Berger, the curator of the exhibition. This discussion will touch on various aspects of Rist’s singular approach to video and sound, her signature moving image installations, as well as site-specific works newly commissioned for Tai Kwun.
As the artist’s first exhibition in Hong Kong, Behind Your Eyelid—Pipilotti Rist offers visitors the chance to experience her signature “virtual hug” of sounds, colours, and moving images that has so captured audiences of all ages around the world. Conceptualised especially by the artist for Tai Kwun, the exhibition Behind Your Eyelid—Pipilotti Rist offers you entry into the artist’s remarkable vision. Her fascination with the liminal—the screen, the skin, the membrane, the filter—and her method of breaking video out of the frame generate perceptual shifts and intellectual reflections that open the doors to a wondrous world of inner vision, full of beauty, whimsy, and possibility.
