Ambra Pittoni


Ambra Pittoni is a performance artist and researcher interested in how the entanglement between bodily practices and spatial circumstances emerge as a territory of affectivity and as a vehicle of unexplored epistemological potentialities. To that extent she uses choreography, somatic practices, installation, sound and writing to explore and produce fictional bodies, knowing modalities, collective circumstances of getting to know.

Together with Paul-Flavien Enriquez-Sarano and Lucrezia Calabrò Visconti she found The School of the End of Time, a research based institution with a non hierarchical approach between theoretical and artistic research.

Since 2018 she is part of the curatorial team of Workspace Ricerca X – Dramaturgy and research.

She graduated at the University Paris 8 with a thesis on The end of art and she is a PhD candidate at the Linz University of the Arts with the project The promise of the abyss – Body practices and new spaces of knowledge. In 2022 she has been a fellow of the VALIE EXPORT center.

Among others she presented her works at OGR (Turin), PAV (Turin), Fondazione Baruchello (Rome), Crédac (Ivry sur Seine), De Appel (Amsterdam), Maga Museum of art (Milan), CCA Zamek Ujazdowski (Warsaw), Ashkal Alwan (Beyrut), Roberta (Frankfurt), Sophiensaele (Berlin). She has been visiting professor at NABA (Milan) and ENSAPC (Cergy). Recent publications are The Saintly Hypochondriac, by The School of the End of Time published in L’ANO SOLARE, a year long programme about sex and self- display, curated by Il Colorificio, published by Axis Axis, Ten obvious and not so obvious questions about artistic research, in the Artistes / artistes Performer Les Savoirs, curated by Chloé Dechery and Marion Boudier and published by Les presses du réel.
