On the occasion of the artist’s exhibition at the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, the publication “Mappe” will appear simultaneously / 13 colour plates, 11 facsimile and reprints, 1 original contribution, pad binding, with 3 punch holes
Through the use of various media, Annaïk Lou Pitteloud, who grew up in Lausanne and now lives in Brussels, directs the viewer’s gaze, the observer, to invisible elements that belong to the construction of the image, to institutional space or to the actual creative activity. Simple and direct, Pitteloud’s works pose critical questions about social problems and reveal the sometimes frozen mechanisms of the art world and the codes of perception, mediation and presentation of art.
The two publications “Mappe” and “Dossier” represent two different monographic compilations of works by the artist Annaïk Lou Pitteloud and appear as catalogues to the solo exhibitions at the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen and the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne. The concept for the two publications was developed with these exhibitions in mind, but will be continued in the third, comprehensive edition “Folder”. The basic idea of all three publications is that of a modular documentation of works. Dossiers on all of the artist’s works are created according to a strict grid. Separated by type of content, titles, descriptions of works, notes, documentary images and texts are compiled. Reproductions of drawings and reprints of printed matter used in the exhibitions complete the collection.
This archive forms the basis for the monographic publications, in that a suitable selection of works can be compiled and published according to the occasion of the publication. The individual sheets, which are held together by pad binding, have three punched holes and suggest that the contents can also later be disassembled, rearranged or supplemented and filed in a folder.
