Product Description

Pipilotti Rist, the Swiss video artist, musician and performer won a DAAD scholarship to Berlin in 1996. As a result of her one-year stay the Neue Nationalgalerie in the Hamburger Bahnhof mounted a large-scale exhibition with several video installations, the largest of which was a new work called 'Remake of the Weekend'. Pipilotti Rist produced a light, floating effect by constructing a three dimensional, life-size version of a bus by using back projection screens. The uniform sound track created a dreamy basic mood and a subjective, unusual perspective of a bus journey – not as catastrophic as the one by Jean-Luc Godard in his film 'Weekend', but also not as pointedly from a female point of view as other works. The Berlin video bus is an organic, fluent, slow-motion structure made up of shapes, colours and a naked male passer-by.
