Pipilotti Rist's exhibition Elixir is a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’. By fusing nine individual installations, Rist transformed Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. The Netherlands. The exhibition’s floor plan resembles a living being, with a stomach, heart and lungs. This video organism has grown organically from Rist’s lively oeuvre. In a conversation with the museum’s director Sjarel Ex, Pipilotti Rist talks about the role of museums and art, about color, the beautiful landscapes behind the lids of one’s eye and the double meaning of the naked female body in her work.
