Like some of her contemporaries, Emilie Pitoiset does not reproduce forms familiar from art history. She rather appropriates, in fragments, resources drawn from various sources, from the erudite to pop culture, such as Nouvelle Vague cinema, literature and Nouveau Roman but also documentary, history, or simple, everyday images and objects. The archive reinterpreted and elevated to the rank of art echoes the questioning of philosopher Jacques Rancière: what is art?  photo animals_Page_05_zpsb2bcb8be.png  photo 12_zpsf57fe0d1.jpg

  1. The following time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, however I really thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix in the event you werent too busy looking for attention.
