PIPILOTTI RIST: YOUR SALIVIA IS MY DIVING SUIT IN THE OCEAN OF PAIN. Kunsthaus, Zurich, 2016. Published by Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft mbH, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 96 pp. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783864421631 In English.
Publisher's description: Swiss visual artist Elisabeth Charlotte "Pipilotti" Rist (b. 1962) has been a pioneering figure in video art since the 1980s. Her sensual and audacious video installations tackling conventions and taboos in an entertaining, ironic and self-confident way have brought her international fame. Accompanying her new installation at Kunsthaus Zurich, this condensed information-packed publication is structured as a visual and literary glossary with short alphabetically organized contributions on important themes in her work. Renowned authors such as Martin Suter and Sibylle Berg, the artist's friends, plus art historians, representatives of other guilds and, last but not least, children, all have their say, giving us insight into not only her art but her psyche. In addition, documents and photographs from Rist's personal archive are published here for the first time -- and as a special feature, the book includes 12 large plates that can be removed from the book. Rist's work are in collections such as MoMA, NY; MCA, Chicago; and SFMOMA.
