Emilie Pitoiset (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. She plays with uncanny scenarios whose unfolds a surrealistic visual grammar which is both enigmatic, noir and decadent.

She is also currently preparing a solo show at Klemm's gallery in Berlin called The Vanishing Lady about the most famous magic trick & window-display of Frank Lyman Baum who wrote The Wizard Oz.
