Wishing for Synchronicity: Works by Pipilotti Rist @ Brown Foundation Gallery

Wishing for Synchronicity Works by Pipilotti Rist is the first comprehensive U.S. survey of the seminal work of this Swiss video artist.  Organized by Curator Paola Morsiani, the project brings together Rist’s most significant work from the mid-1980s to the present.  For more than twenty years, Rist has focused on the idea of the female self.  By contextualizing the female body in all its sensory and biological functions, and by layering references to woman, body, and landscape in her work, her installations merge feelings of desire, sensuality, and fantasy with feminist politics of identity and empowerment to create an intense emotional experience.  This unprecedented examination of the development and significance of Rist’s oeuvre sheds new light on her influential and intensely personal fusion of art and visual culture, not only in her ubiquitous female characters, but also in her pioneering installations with image and sound media.  The catalogue contains text by Paola Morsiani, Stephanie Hanor, Mark Harris, René Morales, and an interview with the artist by Linda Yablonsky.
