Pipilotti Rist’s “HALLO, GUTEN TAG (The Kiss)” is a 30 minute color video of the artist pressing her lips to the camera lens. Framed by a mirror, allowing the viewer to see their own reflection, the gesture is meant to symbolize the artist kissing her audience. The video is accompanied by a playful soundtrack. Please note that the video cassette may be removed to be mounted elsewhere.
Pipilotti Rist was featured in the 54th Venice Biennale (2011)
"Pipilotti Rist burst on the international art scene in the1990's with visually lush video works that explore female sexuality combined with playful and provocative remixes of fantasy."
