Aïda Ruilova: The Singles 1999–Now


An AAM publication. Introduction by Paul Ha. Text by Heidi Zuckerman and Laura Fried. Epilogue by Matthew Thompson. Combining classical cinematic devices with a distinctively jarring, low-tech sensibility, New York–based Aïda 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 Ha and Zuckerman.
