Congratulations!
The book Congratulations! is published by Magasin 3 and Lars Müller Publishers in conjunction with Pipilotti Rist's exhibition Gravity, Be My Friend at Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall, Feb 10-June 17, 2007.

Pipilotti Rist, one of the most acclaimed Swiss artists of today, and Richard Julin, chief curator at Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall (Sweden), met for a special 24-hour session in Zürich.

Their conversation began at the artists studio and carried on into the night back at her home, while they cooked and ate dinner together.

The resulting book Congratulations! is a very personal and fascinating meeting that reveals new dimensions of the world of Pipilotti Rist, with anecdotes from the creation process and reflections on life, art and food.

The richly illustrated book features images of the major new piece, Tyngdkraft, var min vän (Gravity, Be My Friend), created especially for the exhibition. Never before published images of recent works by Pipilotti Rist are also included, such as Homo Sapiens Sapiens shown at the Venice Biennale 2005, A Liberty Statue For Löndön, 2006, and many other seminal works.
