Pipilotti Rist

Liberty Statue for Löndön

16 November - 17 December 2005


Pipilotti Rist emerged on the international art scene with her visually lush video works and multimedia installations. Since the mid-eighties, Rist has experimented with sound and moving image, questioning the role of media culture from a feminist perspective. Rist is interested in the kind of irritating visual material disseminated by the media and the way it is presented via television, on monitors, or as projection. She is fascinated by the physical demands and consequences of such seductive imagery in our society, unpicking how the media and media formats are able to affect our unconsciousness, dreams and desires.
