SpainFESTIVAL INTERNACIONAL DE BENICÀSSIM 2012, 12-15 / 07: ANNIKA STRÖM

27 June, 2012

The ArtAids Foundation participated in FIB ART 2012 with the project Protect Me by Annika Ström. The intervention consisted of a badge designed by the Swedish artist, which was handed out to audiences at FIB 2012.

Annika Ström (Helsingborg, Sweden, 1964) is mainly known for her text-based works, in which she creates statements that draw on some of the dominant discourses from the art world. The ironic phrases that Annika transcribes in her works lie somewhere between honesty and personal ambiguity, and seem to turn against the spectator because of their discouraging, frustrating nature. Ström has also made videos and songs in the course of her extensive experience in the European art scene, and she is currently working on her first feature film. She lives and works in Brighton-Hove, United Kingdom.
