Aida Ruilova: The Singles 1999–Now
Details: Hardcover, clothbound. 120 pages. 2008
Combining classical cinematic devices with a distinctively jarring, low-tech sensibility, New York-based Aida Ruilova creates dark, narrative video work. Her short video loops often feature characters performing cryptic and physically uncomfortable actions, revealing her fascination with the conjunction of horror movie aesthetics and the sublime. This volume accompanies the artist's first one-person museum exhibition, which originated at the Aspen Art Museum and was co-curated by Paul Ha and Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson.
