Biography

Pipilotti (Elisabeth) Rist (born 1962) is a visual artist. She is best known for creating experiential video art and installation art that often portray self-portraits and singing. She work is often described as surreal, intimate, abstract art, having a preoccupation with the female body. Her artwork is often categorized as feminist art. In a 2011 Guardian exhibition review article, Rist describes her feminism: "Politically," she says, "I am a feminist, but personally, I am not. For me, the image of a woman in my art does not stand just for women: she stands for all humans. I hope a young guy can take just as much from my art as any woman."
