Pipilotti Rist burst onto the international art scene in the 1990s with her vibrant large-scale video works and multimedia installations.
Taking up themes of female sexuality and mass media culture through her playful and provocative remixes of fantasy and the everyday, Rist has become one of the most important video artists working today.
This beautifully presented, comprehensive mid-career survey is published to coincide with a major exhibition at London’s Hayward Gallery, and to complement the subsequent European tour of the show.
With essays by Chrissie Iles, Elisabeth Bronfen,Stephanie Rosenthal, Stefanie Mueller and Konrad Bitterli, and featuring a visual essay created specifically for the book by Rist herself, this lavishly-illustrated, casebound book charts the fascinating career of one of the world’s best-loved artists.
Published alongside the exhibition Pipilotti Rist: Eyeball Massage at the Hayward Gallery, London, 28 September 2011 – 8 January 2012.
