Inside the Pipilotti Rist Exhibit at the Kunsthaus Zürich

Pipilotti Rist Exhibit Kunsthaus Zürich

The Museum for Modern Art in Zürich is hosting a rather exceptional, if not to say provocative, exhibition: "Your Saliva is my Diving Suit in the Ocean of Pain."

Pipilotti Rist is a Swiss video installation art guru, and her latest works will be on display through May 8. In case you were wondering: The exhibition's loud title was taken from one of the artist's songs. Kunsthaus Zürich is now showing some older Pipilotti works from the 1980's, as well as some new creations. The exhibition is very playful and random, and the installations surprise with the creative approach.

Take the magical Pixel Forest which sends you in a half-trance, daydreaming state while you lay down on a cozy carpet.
