Publisher Note

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.
With the modular work documentation “Folder”, Annaïk Lou Pitteloud presents for the first time a comprehensive publication on her artistic work to date. The publication is preceded by the two sub-publications “Folder” and “Dossier”. As catalogues for the solo exhibitions at the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen and the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne, they contain different compilations of the artist’s works that are related to the respective exhibitions and thus illustrate the basic idea of the present modular documentation of works. Files on all 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.
