Behind the Scenes with Pipilotti Rist, Pour Your Body Out (7354 Cubic Meters), MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art presents a new large-scale installation by Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist (b. 1962), entitled Pour Your Body Out (7354 Cubic Meters). A pioneer in the field of innovative multimedia installations, Rist is best known for her playfully provocative video, sound, and sculptural environments.

MoMA commissioned the artist to reinvent the space and reenvision the architecture of the Museum's Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium—a space with a volume measuring approximately 7,354 cubic meters. The resulting installation is a lush, immersive landscape shaped by images, sound, and sculptural elements.

Pipilotti Rist's lush multimedia installations playfully and provocatively merge fantasy and reality. Visitors will be able to experience the work while walking through the space or sitting upon a sculptural seating island designed by the artist. (c) 2008 The Museum of Modern Art, New York
