Door middel van uiteenlopende media uit Annaïk Lou Pitteloud kritische bespiegelingen over culturele en sociale problemen. Door gebruik van minimale vormen om een verhaallijn te suggereren, verwijst het werk naar de kunsthistorische context als een flexibel raster waarin die bespiegelingen kunnen worden gevat. Door deze non-lineaire benadering laat het werk een lege kern achter; de toeschouwer kan deze naar eigen voorkeur invullen. De samenhang tussen de stukken die Annaïk Lou Pitteloud toont tijdens RijksakademieOPEN 2011, verwijst met name naar de parameters van kunstproductie, het gebruik van ledigheid en de manieren om inhoud te verspreiden.

Through a variety of media the work of Annaïk Lou Pitteloud articulates critical reflections on cultural and social problematics. By using minimal forms to suggest a narrative, it refers to the art historical context as a flexible grid in which these reflections can be invested. Consequently this nonlinear practice allows the work to leave an empty centre that can be freely filled in by the viewer. The correlation of pieces exhibited during the RijksakademieOPEN 2011 mainly comments on the parameters of art production, the use of idleness and the means of content distribution.
