The deviously delicious imagination of internationally renowned multimedia artist Pipilotti Rist invites audiences to lie back and lounge inside her film. Lobe of Lung is a fully immersive installation rendition of her debut feature film Pepperminta, which is being screened in the films’ program. Starring two humans, a pig, and an earthworm, Lobe of Lung merges fantasy with reality as it opens up the walls of New Frontier onto a luscious panoramic poem that bathes audiences in audiovisual delight.
