27 June – 31 August 2008
One of Europe’s leading contemporary artists, Pipilotti Rist explores the world and our relationship with our environment to address the third element of the Human Futures programme. Famed for her stunning sculptural video installations that are often presented in unusual locations, the exhibition will traverse the natural to the industrial world.
With the UK premiere of Gravity, Be My Friend and new elements designed especially for FACT, Rist will give UK audiences her individual interpretation of self-invention and through a mix of fantasy and humour suggest new rules for how humans can live together.
Full list of works to be shown at FACT are Gravity, Be My Friend (2007), Das Zimmer – The Room (1994 – 2007), Your Space Capsule (2006), Apple tree Innocent on Diamond Hill (2003), Open My Glade (2000), Ever Is Over All (1997), Blutraum (1993 – 1998)
