Paola Pivi, Hardback Book


Over the course of her two-decade career, the Italian-born, Alaska-based multimedia artist Paola Pivi (born 1971) has fashioned such unlikely objects as a mausoleum made of cookies and a rotating airplane.

Many of her sculptures and photographs are comical, as in her pictures of miniaturized designer chairs attached to bare buttocks, or a leopard walking across rows of cappuccino cups.

Animals are a recurrent presence throughout, whether taxidermied and rendered sculptural or alive and photographed in unlikely locales (e.g. her tender portrait of two zebras, their heads hooked around each other's necks, against a backdrop of mountain snow).

This volume is published for Pivi's 2013 exhibition at the Galerie Perrotin in Paris, and gathers a selection of her work from the past ten years.
