The Leeum Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul has invited Pipilotti Rist for its Black Box media art series.

For the second time, the museum has invited an internationally-renowned artist for its Black Box media art project series. The guest is none other than Swiss video-maker Pipilotti Rist, whose intense and colour-charged audio-visual pieces are marking the exhibition space in a subtler way than we might have expected.

Titled Spear to Heaven, the installation comprises a four-channel video projection over a series of translucent drapes, arranged across the dark room. The usually psychedelic imagery of the artist thus becomes even more layered and complex, bringing the usual overlapping – a staple in Rist’s aesthetic – outside into the physical space of the museum.

The artwork will stay on show until 16 September.
