La répétition, 2012

Runtime 1:29 16mm film Emilie Pitoiset (b. 1980, based in Paris) produces artworks that activate a series of characters and fictions through an on-going narrative that deals with the exhibition as a format, including elements such as film and performance. Her work is infused by figures such as Woolf, Ackerman, Chris Kraus, Robbe-Grillet, Flaubert, Huysmans and Fassbinder that she mirrors and leads astray into a subtle “eroticisation” of everyday life. She plays with uncanny scenarios which unfolds a surrealistic visual grammar which is both enigmatic, noir and decadent. Recent solo projects include a presentation in the context of ‘Double Feature’ Shirn Museum, Frankfurt am Main - ‘It's all the gold that i have’, Klemm's Gallery, Berlin - ‘The silent actions’, Frac Champagne Ardenne, Reims and ‘You are late. Ceremony’ in Les Eglises, Chelles. Pitoiset's has also participated in numerous group exhibitions in such museums as Witte de With, Pompidou Center, Palais de Tokyo, Badischer Kunstverein, Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden, Bielefeld Kunstverein, Museum Ostwall, Kadist Art Foundation.
