Over the last three decades, Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist (born 1962) has been an original and impactful voice on the contemporary art scene with her sensuous, colorful and norm-subverting audio and video universes (the artist’s first name is itself a nod to Swedish author Astrid Lindgren’s rebellious, freethinking heroine Pippi Longstocking). With projections on ceilings, walls and floors, Rist liberates the moving image from the screen through installations and new electronic formats. While body and gender are central themes in her early pieces, the main focus of her recent work has shifted toward nature. Rist’s art is sensually playful and compelling, while also diving deeply into existential abysses.
