Annalena Müller is a visual artist, curator and art educator based in Zurich, Switzerland. Her artistic practice spans from illustration and painting to installation and site-specific art. The underlying themes of her work are often relating to the ephemera, the quest for light in its relation to darkness, the impact color has, and to the natural world, especially forms and vibes coming from the ocean.

Annalena’s concept for Curtidas was to use the display windows as her visual blog, where she would ‘post‘ something new every other day, based on her experiences in Barcelona. Often on display were small, found objects, brought back from her extensive bike-excursions. They were accompanied by short, witty written comments, reflecting the artist’s thought process when picking up the pieces. She also painted on the glass of the windows directly, to create a personal background for displaying her findings. The buildings of Antoni Gaudí became a major inspiration for Annalena, as well as the vibrant local skate- and graffiti scene.
