Item description for Pepperminta Homo sapiens sapiens: Boxa ludens by Bundesamt für Kultur Pipilotti Rist...
This artist's book by the internationally celebrated Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist is literally a chocolate box themed to address the last, mysterious 15 minutes before the fall of man. Published by one of the most important publishers of international art and design books and edited by the Swiss Federal Office of Culture, it is a deluxe and seductive object that will also serve as the official publication for Rist's exhibition at this year's Venice Biennale. The box includes a poster and images of saints, dreams and ideas of paradise. Rist burst onto the international art scene in the mid-1990s with mesmerizing video installations influenced by visual art, music, architecture, and social politics. Her witty, poetic, and experimental work fuses natural and urban worlds, and often features erotic or uncanny images of the human body, particularly her own. Inspired by artists like Nam June Paik and Yoko Ono, Rist's work expands into gallery spaces in a manner that encourage viewers to see and experience art in unconventional ways. Boxed, 7.5 x 10 in./25 pgs / Illustrated throughout.
