Annelies Strba

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Annelies Štrba is a Swiss multimedia artist, living and working in Zurich. She works with video, photography, and digital media to approach her subjects, which range from domestically themed images, portraiture, and both urban and natural landscapes. Annelies combines photography, digital media, and film to chronicle her physical and emotional life. A mother of three, she has been documenting her family environment through her work for over four decades. Although she works with subject matter that is quite literally close to home, she constructs a quality of fantastical narrative in her pictures through the use of digital manipulation.

Selected solo exhibitions include: HOLY VISIT, Madonnabilder of Annelies Strba, Museum m'zu Allerheiligen Schaffhausen, Switzerland (2016); Galerie Anton Meier, Geneva, Switzerland (2015); Annelis Strba - Madonnen, Graphische Sammlung ETH, Zürich, Switzerland (2014); Shades of Time, Kunsthaus Zug (2013); Frances et les Elfes, Ferme-Asile, Centre artistique & culturel, Sion, Switzerland (2010); Annelies Strba, Jason McCoy Gallery, New York (2010); My Life Dreams: Annelies Strba, Kindermuseum Burg Wissem, Troisdorf, Germany (2009); My Life Dreams, The Brontë Parsonage Museum Haworth, Haworth, UK (2008).
