Notable for her ability to merge fantasy and
reality through lush, dreamlike scenes in room-sized installations, Swiss video
artist and filmmaker Pipilotti Rist explores themes of media culture and
feminism. Drawing from a background in graphic design, TV, and advertising
motifs, as well as pioneering predecessors, Rist’s wistful videos ironically
comment on consumer and popular culture through suggestive imagery, ambiguous
narratives, and a touch of voyeurism.
