Pipilotti Rist: Eyeball Massage

Contemporary Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist presents her first major London exhibition at the Hayward Gallery from the 28th Sep.. that's tomorrow (to Jan 8th 2012).
Rist is renowned for fusing colour, sensual images and mesmerising music to create immersive video installations in which the visitors themselves become important elements of the artwork. She uses themes such as birth and death, family and love, the body and the natural world whilst playing with size and scale and the natural world vs the urban environment.

You do have to pay to get in but it will be worth it as it won't just be your eyes that are 'massaged' at this psychedelic exhibition. There will be sculptures and installations that provide an adventure for the whole body, with opportunities to lie on beanbags and listen to music and watch films peering through floorboards. Watch the video below to get a sneak peek into the exhibition!
