In anticipation of the opening of Pipilotti Rist: Pour Your Body Out (7354 Cubic Meters), a monumental commission for the Museum's second-floor atrium, the artist takes part in a conversation with Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator of Media, about her video, sound, and sculptural installations. Many of her earliest videos were made with the experimental klezmer-punk-pop band Les Reines Prochaines, of which she was a member from 1988 to 1994. In the early 1990s, Rist began experimenting with various forms of electronic media. In 2005 she represented Switzerland at the fifty-first Venice Biennale, where she presented Homo sapiens sapiens (2005), an expansive video projected onto the ceiling of the San Stae church. For her upcoming installation at MoMA, Rist re-envisions the architecture and use of space in the Museum's atrium by creating a lush, immersive landscape shaped by images, sound, and sculptural elements.
