Hiplights (Enlighted Hips) // Pipilotti Rist // 2011// used & washed underpants, steel cables & custom-made LED lamps
Yes that is underwear hanging from a wire. And yes, I know what you were thinking, this is art? Created by video artist Pipilotti Rist, this work is known as “Hiplights (Enlighted Hips)” and showcases both used and washed underwear hanging on a wire, illuminated by LED lamps. Resembling a drying wire for clothes, Rist creates a playful scene in an otherwise ordinary hallway.
