"I shall make a classical artist's book, and it will fulfill no expectations, except that this volume will become a book I would love to get from my twin sister who only exists in my dreams. The book will consist of photographs and video stills, poems, facsimilies of drawings and other traces with explanations. An encyclopedia of afternoons without any alphabetical order. The book will praise life, it will be charming and compassionate, with numerous details to get lost in, and survival strategies to discover. A pocket book that one wants to look at again and again. The book will be created on the carpet of my apartment on the 15th floor and in designer Thomas Rhyner's generous house. His house leaks when it rains, and I am shortsighted and have to go closer to see. The eye is a blood-driven camera..." With such poetic and enigmatic words internationally acclaimed artist Pipilotti Rist describes her new book. Rist has exhibited in all major museums of the world and is represented in all important collections of contemporary art. One of her latest projects that made her world famous was a public video installations on Times Square/New York City. Rist's imagery oscillates between video clips and the melancholic desire to daydream (im-) possible worlds. Her installations and videos attract a large public that might never have visited a museum before - Pipilotti Rist indeed has a following that reaches far beyond the public of contemporary art! Published on the occasion of Pipilotti Rist's exhibition at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in October 2001.
