Kunsthaus Zurich will hold an exhibition “Pipilotti Rist” from February 26th. Pipilotti Rist is a pioneering figure in video art and has achieved international fame for her sensual and audacious video installations that tackle conventions and taboos in an entertaining, ironic and self-confident way.
The exhibition presents key works from the beginning of her international career, including the early single-channel videos with which she became known in the 1980s. Pipilotti is creating a large-format installation in the expansive space of the Bührle gallery specially for the exhibition, in which she explores new artistic and technical avenues.
The show is more than just a retrospective: it is conceived to fill the designated space in its totality as one single installation, in which new and older works reveal surprising links between the various phases of her career and fields of activity. It would be an exclusive presentation.
