Pipilotti Rist: Apricots along the Streets.

I shall make a classical artist's book, and it will fulfill no expectations, (...) 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. (...) I am shortsighted and have to go closer to see. The eye is a blood-driven camera ...
With these poetic and enigmatic words internationally acclaimed video artist Pipilotti Rist describes her exhilarating and exuberant new book that oscillates between video-clip aesthetics and the melancholy desire to daydream (im)possible worlds. It's a deliciously quirky whirl of images offering a zany overview of Rist's work and life. She cannily flirts with the reader, seduces him to delve into her universe and to imaginatively engage with it. It''s an irresistibly playful book of hours for the age of mass media that you will want to look at time and again.
Published on the occasion of Pipilotti Rist's exhibition at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in October 2001.
