Summary note:
"The most comprehensive monograph to date on the groundbreaking Swiss artist and international art star, Pipilotti Rist. A pioneer of experimental video art, Pipilotti Rist is celebrated for her expansive installations that bridge the spaces between fine art and popular culture, the natural world and the technological sublime. Through vivid colors, audaciously sensuous imagery, and playful sexuality, Rist's art-which ranges from single-channel videos to multilayered environments-absorbs viewers in a hyperfeminine aesthetic interlaced with deeper themes of pain, innocence, and transformation. This sumptuously illustrated book features hundreds of colorful images and covers the full breadth and depth of Rist's career to date, from her early video works of the 1980s to an installation she created specifically for her major survey exhibition at the New Museum, New York (October 2016 - January 2017). Essays by leading voices from the cultural world-and an interview with the artist by New Museum Edlis Neeson Artistic Director Massimiliano Gioni-offer new perspectives on Rist's oeuvre, contextualizing her work within the history of contemporary and video art, and revealing connections between her art and the evolution of modern technologies."
