In her own words, Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist uses moving images to ‘discover new ways of configuring the world, both the world outside and the world within’.

Pipilotti Rist: Eyeball Massage was the artist’s first survey show in the UK. Spanning her entire career, it featured single-channel videos, sculptures, photographs, wallpapers and video installations, as well as two site-specific works created for Hayward Gallery.
