On this occasion Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and Pipilotti Rist invite visitors to portray a friend in a short video, inspired by Elixir: the video organism of Pipilotti Rist.
The videos will be shown on the museum’s website and YouTube channel (http://nl.youtube.com/group/pipilottirist). Twenty videos will be selected for the finals, five of which will be chosen by the visitors of the website. A competent jury will chose the winner and four runners-up.
These five videos will be integrated in the Pipilotti Rist exhibition at the Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam. The winner is invited to the Boijmans Masterclass by world-famous video artist Pipilotti Rist on 28 March 2009.
Pipilotti Rist, Oscar van der Kroon (NPS Cultura), Sjarel Ex and Catrien Schreuder (Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen) will choose the winner and four runners-up.
