Pipilotti Rist

By displaying work using fusions of light, object and space Pipilotti Rist explores themes of feminism, the body and performance art by using analogue film and projection especially in her early works like “I’m Not The Girl Who Misses Much.” From watching the video I really don’t understand the reasoning behind it as I begin to get distracted by the heightened noises like the talking and also the movement of the figure.

 

The piece “Mother Floor” feels a lot stronger with the themes that Rist deals within “I’m not the girl who misses much” as the image is a lot clearer and it focuses more on the body as a performance by using different camera angels and strong colours.
