b. 1947, Zug, Switzerland
Annelies Strba’s work is concerned with notions of time and history; subjects which she expresses in a metaphorical and highly personal way. In the past Strba has approached a wide range of subjects; from the earthquake-stricken city of Kobe or the gloom of Auschwitz to wild flowers on the Bronte Moor. Her attention is most often turned towards her family and their home at Melide, Switzerland, a place with an unmistakable aura. Her working process is only concluded when the images are exhibited, often a number of variants of the same story emerge and connections are made visible. Making pictures is part of Annelies Strba’s everyday life; it is her way of engaging with and making sense of her world.
