Overview

Pipilotti Rist (born 1962) burst onto the international art scene in the late 1980s with visually lush video and multimedia works that explore sexuality and media culture through playful and provocative remixes of fantasy and the everyday. Highly accomplished technically, Rist's practice fuses sensual images, dazzling color, music and text to create mesmerizing installations. Published to accompany a major survey exhibition at London's Hayward Gallery (as well as a European tour), this comprehensive volume is thoroughly illustrated and conceived in close collaboration with the artist. Essays by Stephanie Rosenthal, Elizabeth Bronfen, Chrissie Iles and Stefanie Müller explore the many facets of Rist's art, including her treatment of the relationship between the body and the camera, and her use of two- and three-dimensional sculptural forms, while a visual essay by the artist provides a rare insight into her working methods.
