Himalaya Goldsteins StubePinakothek der Moderne
The new collection display also features one of the largest whole-room installations by the Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist (b. 1962), now on show again for the first time in several yeahirs.
The work Himalaya Goldsteins Stube combines everyday furnishings, video projections, light, and music to create a richly evocative environment. Superimposed over the space’s sensual materials are flickering video images, projected from armchairs, side tables, and lamps. These ghostly emanations penetrate the space’s dimensions and flit between layers of reality. The interior and exterior world, the public and private are melded into one.
