Pipilotti Rist has conceived the site-specific light installation ‘Seelenlichter (Soul Lights)’ for the opening presentation at the Casa Gstaad chalet. In this artistic intervention, natural light floats through tinted windows, transforming the mountain chalet into a universe of its own. The artist perceives each window as both an eye to the soul and to the outside world, offering a moment of reflection and contemplation in joyful multicolour. Rist has used this kind of intervention for museum exhibitions for over 20 years, explaining that ‘the window becomes one big pixel and is no dark hole anymore’.
This winter we celebrate three major shows in our native Switzerland. Within the unparalleled setting of the Swiss Alps, experience work by Jenny Holzer, Pablo Picasso and Alexander Calder, artists with remarkably diverse oeuvres and worldwide recognition. Light projections, towering sculptures and rarely-seen artist portraits are all given a new, invigorating context within the natural beauty of our Gstaad and St. Moritz locations.
