Pipilotti Rist in conversation at her exhibition ‘I Packed The Postcard in My Suitcase’ at The Australian Centre for Contemoprary Art. Pipilotti talks about her approaches to video and how she hopes people experience the show. She also explains her use of colour, speed and sound, her reflections on the museum as an experience, and how the development of digital video and new technologies has influenced her practice.

Named a “guilty pleasure” by British critic Adrian Searle, Pipilotti Rist is one of this century’s most sought after artists and has shown in major exhibitions, biennales and festivals around the world, including the Venice Biennale in 2005 where she represented Switzerland with the stunning installation Homo Sapiens Sapiens in the Church of St. Stae.

Her works are epic and lush and often deal with issues related to gender, sexuality and the human body, but in a way that evokes a sense of unadulterated happiness and innocence.

Her ACCA exhibition, the first major presentation of her work in Australia, will bring together several key works from Rist’s recent exhibiting history, as well as a new commission which will spread across ACCA’s main exhibition hall with kaleidoscopic glee.
