Louisiana poster with still image of the video work, Mercy Garden, Retour Retour (2014), by Swiss visual artist, Pipilotti Rist (b. 1962). Rist is one of the biggest and most popular names in contemporary art. The poster was published in 2019 in connection with Louisiana's major exhibition, 'Pipilotti Rist - Open my Light'.

Color, nature, body and desire seem to merge when the Swiss artist, Pipilotti Rist, gets extremely close with her camera and creates her sensual, intimate and sometimes disturbing video works.

At the 2019 exhibition, the internationally recognized contemporary artist had transformed the entire south wing of Louisiana into a brightly colored and sensory-saturated universe. The work Mercy Garden, Retour Retour, was here projected in large format on an end wall, because Pipilotti Rist thinks of video as both painting and space, and has said: "For me, video is like a painting on glass in motion."

For Louisiana, the museum's guests—and for Pipilotti Rist herself—the exhibition was the culmination of a long and very special relationship. Rist feels so connected to Louisiana, which was the first museum in the world to acquire one of her works for its collection.

She is actually christened Elisabeth Charlotte Rist, but already as a young woman took the stage name, Pipilotti, as a salute to Astrid Lindgren's anarchist and free-thinking Pippi Longstocking. Rist's art can seem both challenging and provocative, but at the same time also full of joy and humor.
