If you identify as female, then you're invited to slip out of your workaday apparel and join a naturist tour of Pipilotti Rist's Sip My Ocean, which is currently showing at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA). The event aims to recognise and celebrate diverse experiences of femaleness, as well as to break down barriers between the viewer and the artwork. The only rule is that you can't wear any clothing.
Sip My Ocean is the biggest Pipilotti Rist exhibition ever to have hit Australia. For the past three decades, the Swiss artist has been exploring the outer limits of video art and this show covers her journey, from single channel videos created in the 1980s to recent, giant-sized immersive installations.
"Pipilotti Rist has mesmerised thousands of MCA visitors — and their Instagram followers! — with her dazzling environments, colourful kaleidoscopic projections, videos and sculptures," said Elizabeth Ann Macgregor OBE, director of the MCA.
