Artist Pipilotti Rist's Eyeball Massage: 'dedicated to pleasure and being alive'

The Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist talks to The Guardian 's Adrian Searle about her new exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, which features psychedelic video works and a pair of underpants hanging on a line.

The New Yorker critic Peter Schjeldahl has described Rist as an "evangelist of happiness". She is more than that. Her work is seriously crafted and paced, as generous as it is dangerous. We are, she has said, "permanently juicy machines" – and you can't really argue with that.

See the interview and extracts of her work here.
