Annika Ström's songs, text pieces and films all touch on the question of inadequacy – if not miserable failure. The content and aesthetics repeatedly play with the notion of imperfection. Ström's text pieces are clearly hand painted, the videos include shaky, blurred images, and her rhythm-box compositions flirt with an amateurish Eurovision aesthetic. Her relationship with the means of production is calculated to form an inherent problem between technologies or tools and her own manufacture.
Ström's first major monograph "Annika Ström Live" has been recently released, published by Onestar press and Fälth & Hässler. She is working on her first feature film and its new soundtrack. She is represented by c/o Atle Gerhardsen, Berlin, Galleria Sonia Rosso, Turin and Galleri Charlotte Lund, Stockholm.
