Tiziana De Silvestro
Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency
Tiziana De Silvestro is a Swiss photographer. Central to her work is the theme of disorientation and displacement found in travel and urban life. The photographer places herself in a crowd: a fixed point in a fluid body. Camouflaged by anonymity, Tiziana enters their private world, free to observe life in all its guises.
Recent solo exhibitions include: Galerie Mäder, Basel (2012); Dabei sein, Kunstmuseum Thun (2000); Coins de vues, CIC Saint-Gervais, Genève (1998); Passenger Call, Nikon Image House, Küsnacht (1997); Galerie Pennings, Eindhoven (1996); Schneider Gallery, Chicago (1996); and Galerie La Terrasse, Sierre (1996). Tiziana has also shown in Johannesburg, South Africa; Maputo, Mozambique; London, UK; and Milan, Italy.
