Item description for Pipilotti Rist Congratulations! by Richard Julin & Tessa Praun...
Pipilotti Rist, one of the most acclaimed Swiss artists of today, and Richard Julin, chief curator at Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall (Sweden), met for a day in Zurich in connection with the preparations for Rist's solo exhibition "Gravity, Be My Friend" in Stockholm in Spring 2007. Their conversation began at the artist's studio and carried on into the evening back at her home, while they cooked and ate dinner together. The resulting book "Congratulations!" is a very personal and fascinating conversation that reveals new dimensions of the world of Pipilotti Rist, with anecdotes from the creation process and reflections on life, art and food.
The richly illustrated book features images of the major new piece, "Tyngdkraft, var min vn" (Gravity, Be My Friend), created especially for the exhibition. Never before published images of recent works by Pipilotti Rist such as "Homo Sapiens Sapiens" shown at the Venice Biennale 2005, "A Liberty Statue For Lndn", 2006, and many other seminal works are also included.
