http://www.vernissage.tv | Pipilotti Rist: Heroes of Birth at Luhring Augustine Gallery in New York presents two colorful large scale video projection works and an LCD triptych by Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist.

The work in the entry gallery, All or Nothing, is a triptych of LCD screens mounted on the wall, surrounded by an altar with fresh flowers and water for the visitors.

In the gallery's main space, the visitor is surrounded by several videos that are projected on cascading translucent fabrics hanging from the ceiling. They show images from nature such as sheep and grass. Together with the melodic sounds that fill the room, a meditative environment is created. The work is titled Layers Mama Layers. The piece shows also a new element in Pipilotti Rist's work, the use of computer graphics.

The rear gallery is dominated by Massachusetts Chandelier, a chandelier made of underpants that were collected from the artist and her friends and family. The chandelier is lit by a light bulb that is placed inside and two videos that are projected on it from the outside.
