Sira-Zoé Schmid

Working within the extended field of photography Sira-Zoé Schmid explores the different (multilayered) possibilities of multimedia pictorial invention.

The examination of all media and sociocultural topics that surround us are very important to Schmid and are conducive to her artistic work.

While on Artist in Residency in the US in 2017 Schmid created her latest (so far) two-part video performance ‘Desert Flower’. “With a clear and poetic visual language, ‘Desert Flower’ is a universal exploration into loss and ephemerality and the various mechanisms of coping with these sensations” (Curator Sophie Haslinger).

The photographic film ‘Happy Slapping’ (2012) as well as the two-part video ‘The yellow shoe’ (2013) are part of her multimedia project ‘Daily Warfare’.

In 2016/17 she mostly worked on her other ongoing multimedia project ‘Past | Present | Future’ a comprehensive archive about women as art producers.

Her work has been shown in several international institutions and galleries, such as ada, Bildraum 01, Galerie im Traklhaus, among others.

Sira-Zoé Schmid is living and working in Vienna and Salzburg.
