Pippa Skotnes

South African 1957- 


Pippa Skotnes was born in Johannesburg. She was educated at the University of Cape Town where she received Master of Fine Art and Doctor of Literature degrees. After she was sued by the South African Library for a copy of her artist’s book about Lucy Lloyd and the |xam, Sound from the Thinking Strings, she became deeply interested in the nature of the book, producing several volumes inscribed on the bones of horses, leopards, and blue cranes. The exhibitions Lamb of God and the Book of Iterations (2001-2011), which have been exhibited in South Africa, Europe, and the USA, followed. Skotnes has produced many publications over her career, including, Claim to the Country (Jacana, 2007), Unconquerable Spirit (Jacana, 2008), and Book of Iterations (Axeage Press, 2009). She is currently a Research Professor at the Centre for Curating the Archive at the University of Cape Town, where she is working on artwork and a project about land, language, and refuge in the Northern Cape.
