Pipilotti Rist is a pioneer of spatial video art, and has been a central figure within the international art scene since the mid-1980s.
Astounding the art world with the energetic exorcistic statement of her now famous single channel videos, such as ‘I’m Not The Girl Who Misses Much’, 1986 and ‘Pickelporno’, 1992, her artistic work has co-developed with technical advancements and in playful exploration of its new possibilities to propose footage resembling a collective brain.
Through large video projections and digital manipulation, she has developed immersive installations that draw life from slow caressing showers of vivid color tones.
