Pipilotti Rist: Åbn min lysning (Open My Glade)

Kvadrat and Louisiana Museum of Modern Art have joined forces on their most extensive art collaboration to date.

Åbn min lysning (Open My Glade) by Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist (b. 1962) is the artist’s first major presentation of her work in Denmark. The exhibition will include a new site specific work, Reversed Eyelid, which has been created in collaboration with Kvadrat. The piece is composed of more than 40 Kvadrat Soft Cells panels, creating a 54 meter long visual with a spectacular visual designed by the artist printed on Kvadrat’s upholstery textile Primus.

Reversed Eyelid's soft coloured membranes covers the walls in the ‘apartment’ of the South Wing. The motif on the custom-made Kvadrat Soft Cells panels is depicting the imagery behind eyelids. The design is an almost ‘solarized’ afterimage that simultaneously has the character of a microscopic view inside the body. By placing us behind the imitated eyelid, Pipilotti Rist reduces us into tiny units inside a body with radical change in proportions as consequence.
