One of the world’s most celebrated artists, Pipilotti Rist, draws
together a body of work that explores what it is to be human. In her
trademark heady mix of bright light, lush colours and zany feminine
energy, the work in this exhibition explores the loss of innocence. It
challenges viewers to look at art differently: whether lying on the
floor, peering into a small dark crack in the floor or perched on
oversized furniture.

Exploring the third element of FACT’s 2008 Human Futures programme: my world, Pipilotti Rist examines our relationship with the natural environment. Often playing the lead within her films, she re-works the well-worn cliché of woman as a symbol of nature, andman as a symbol of culture.
