Pipilotti Rist is an experimental artist who uses video art and installations to create masterpieces. From 01 November 2017 to 18 February 2018, she had ten pieces on display at the Museum of Contemporary Arts Australia.
We found out about her work through instagram, and admittedly, our main focus was the light installation however the 2 hour trip turned out to be a really creative and fun journey.
What an eye-catching, art installation! You can definitely see why it was overcrowded with people trying to do one for the gram. The room was big enough to walk around without bumping into anyone. In terms of photos, you had to be really, really patient. Most people spent 30 mins inside, sitting around the edges and walking through it to get the right shot.
In the next room were these metal balls suspended from the ceiling, with a light show scattered along the walls and floors. Michael took this photo and it reminded me of the golden snitch.
This was a very interactive room, with a chandelier made of underwear, sofas and chairs, and a bed that everyone was getting into for a photo. There were lots of aspects to this room to observe and interact with, we probably spent 30 minutes here as well.
Finally we ended the tour in this room with a tiny tv and couches. It reminded us of the Simpsons. Overall, this was a well spent 2 hours. If you ever need something to do in Sydney, check out the MCA for what exhibits are on.
