Pipilotti Rist

31 March to 19 May 2001

Galerie Hauser & Wirth

Pole vaulting in the chapel, bicycling in the laundromat, sky diving in the elevator shaft - such seemingly surrealist combinations of spaces and unexpected uses were outlined by architect Bernard Tschumi as early as 1983. The Löwenbräu building in Zurich is a striking example of this tendency (which has meanwhile become a fashion) to assign new functions to existing urban structures. Pipilotti Rist, the Swiss video artist, has her first show at the Galerie Hauser & Wirth, inaugurating their new exhibition space on the ground floor of the former brewery building. next >>>
