BARCELONA. The Fundació Joan Miró will be presenting an exhibition by the Swiss videoartist Pipilotti Rist, winner of the 2009 Joan Miró Prize.

Pipilotti Rist is currently preparing, for summer 2010, an exhibition at the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona and another at the Centre Cultural Caixa Girona–Fontana d’Or in Girona. Both exhibitions are sponsored by the Fundació Caixa Girona.

Rist never ceases to surprise and provoke us with her artistic explorations that show us mental and aesthetic landscapes while penetrating the deepest level of the personal and collective consciousness, often straddling both in a forceful yet elusive way. With her audiovisual installations, Rist opens a window onto a strange world that ranges from the colourful, sensual fluidity of Sip My Ocean (1996) to an enveloping interaction with architectural spaces, as in Homo Sapiens Sapiens, projected onto the roof of the church of San Stae in Venice (2005). However, her work can also be bold and indeed shocking when she presents her own body as the medium for making categorical statements about the representations and perceptions of femininity, such as in the well known video from her early years, I’m Not The Girl Who Misses Much (1986) or the Times Square loop, Open My Glade (2000).

The artist has shown her work in galleries and museums around the world, including the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and MoMA in New York. She has recently completed her first full-length feature film, Pepperminta, which will be premiered in Switzerland in September this year, and is at present showing “Elixir”, an exhibition at the Kiasma Museum in Helsinki that had previously been at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
