Louisiana poster with still image from the video work, Ever is Overall (1997), by Pipilotti Rist (b. 1962). Swiss artist Rist is one of the biggest and most popular names in contemporary art. She is known for her sensual, brightly colored and wonderful video works and installations. The poster was published in 2019 in connection with Louisiana's major exhibition, 'Pipilotti Rist - Open my Light'.

In the video work, Ever is Overall, you see a woman, "armed" with a tropical flower, strolling along the sidewalk in slow motion while she smashes car windows with the flower.

Still, Pipilotti Rist succeeds, with the help of tempo, music and close-ups of flowers in particular, to transform an apparently destructive act into a kind of hopeful and redemptive gesture. Rist's art can seem both challenging and provocative, but at the same time also full of joy and humor.

She is actually christened Elisabeth Charlotte Rist, but already as a young woman took the stage name, Pipilotti, as a salute to Astrid Lindgren's anarchist and free-thinking Pippi Longstocking.

One of Pippilotti Rist's first large-format video works is Ever is Overall . The work has become an iconic reference point over the years, and many may think of Beyoncé's music video, 'Hold Up', from her 2016 album, Lemonade.
