The photographic interventions of Pitoiset considered as “body scores” manifest in the series Tainted Love (2017-19), a reference to the British synth-pop duo Soft Cell’s cult hit version of the song from the early 1980s—a period of world-wide upheaval marked by the advent of neoliberal deregulation, the rise of neoconservatisms, and the devastating AIDS epidemic. Through installation, Pitoiset’s work is entirely driven by the human body’s will to never give up, to break the limits of its biological functions and to go beyond itself, to enter a mimetic trance that mirrors the structural upheavals that affect any given society.
