Live from her residency at the Onassis Foundation in Athens, the artist Émilie Pitoiset (b. 1980 in Noisy Le Grand, FR), put together a playlist of tracks that have an influence or that accompany her artistic practice. Alongside her playlist, Émilie is sharing some thoughts on the importance of music in her work and on her own involvement within the scene, with her band Ophelia. Finally, we are also sharing a throwback to her solo exhibition MANIAC which took place at Klemm’s in September 2020, on the occasion of Gallery Weekend Berlin.
