This event has ended.

This autumn the Hara Museum is pleased to present "Karakara," a solo exhibition by the Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist, a leading figure in Europe's contemporary art scene. This is surprisingly the artist's first solo exhibition to be held at a Japanese museum. Ten representative works will be on view, including "Das Zimmer" (The Room) (1994/2000), a large-scale installation that she created early in her career; the much-talked about work at the Venice Biennale, "Ever is Over All" (1997); and the more recent work "À la belle étoile" (Under the Sky) (2007).

今年一番の展覧会でした!ピピロッティと原美術館がここまであうとは予想外です。

Human conditions
As in butoh, Pipilotti Rist seeks the primordial and the present
By Donald Eubank
Japan TImes Staff writer

"Selfless in the Bath of Lava" (1994), was described by Rist as being designed to make "the viewer become the god, with the possibility of giving relief." In a tiny hole in the floor, a screen shows her naked, looking up and ranting at you. Viewers, helpless to do anything to calm her — perhaps like any gods that may exist — will probably only laugh and walk away bemused ...

久しぶりにコンテンポラリーアートを見ようと思って何も知らずに出かけたのですが、クリーンヒットでした!

とても素敵なイベントでした。

数年前に話題の新進作家として来日して以来、見守ってきた作家。難解なことを難解に思考することを拒絶するような狂気とユーモアと批評性の共存=ピピロッティ・マジックは本展でも随所に散りばめられている。

Only one video show " Ever Is Over All" which is her most famous work was worth seeing for me. Others are borning.

際どい、と書いてから際どいという単語は
ボーダーライン上に存在し、しかしその線内に収まっている
様子を表す言葉なのではないかと再考した。

そう言う意味では、際どいとは表現できない。
超えてしまっている。アートとポルノの境界線は
どうも自分には理解できない部分だが、

I liked 'Under the Sky'.
One must stand in the middle of the projection to enjoy the work.
The presentation could have been much better. Light coming from the entrance was quite distracting.... I feel it needed a darker and quieter place.

I also liked 'the room' installation. The concept is good but the feeling didn't last long. The installation was too minimal and I felt the need of more objects as a layman to get the feeling of the 'world' that the artist has tried to create.

Overall, worth visiting.
