Item description for Pipilotti Rist (Friedrich Christian Flick Collection) by Pipilotti Rist...
Pipilotti Rist continually reinvents the art of installation. With her multimedia audio and video installations, the Swiss-born artist creates and innovatively transforms big and small spaces, activates machines and produces serial video stills filled with her very individual and vivid imagery. Her everyday themes and images reflect fundamental, vital issues: love and loss, birth and death, family and solitude, gender and individuality, dream and reality. The artist directly involves the observers of her art and experiments with the communicative and performative abilities of the human body. Supplemented with short interviews on each of the pieces highlighted, Enne Sall's introduction offers the first systematic overview of the works of Pipilotti Rist. Beautifully designed and unusally engaging text.
