Timeline of Myriam Thyes


The series of photos and photomontages Glasgow Styles reflect the artist’s impressions of the post-industrial city of Glasgow and her inhabitants. Thyes has drawn a social portrait and created a kind of contemporary “Historienbilder” (historical paintings). Michael Staab in The Whole Picture. Second Take about this work: “… Now, in her series entitled Glasgow Styles, Myriam Thyes takes the consistent next step, and combines the realistic, serial and documentary potential of photography with the formative, allegorising and metaphor-creating traditions of the fine arts. She compiles individual snapshots into sequences that make lapses of time and changes of perspective visible, and also mounts photographs taken at geographically differing locations and at staggered points in time into altogether new pictorial inventions. The citizens of Glasgow, some of them mounted into the original pictures, happened to be at other locations in the same town at the time the pictures were taken. Thus the right people are in the pictures, only, as stated above, at a different place and at another time. The divergence thus highlighted between space, time and individual remains tangible in Thyes’s works, and conveys to the viewer a profound sense of the mood of the people in this city. …”


Thyes is represented by the media art foundation ‘Imai – inter media art institute’ (Germany) and (Switzerland). She is member of Deutscher Künstlerbund (visual artists association, Germany) and Visarte (visual artists association, Switzerland).

One of her best known works – frequently shown in exhibitions and festivals internationally – is the participatory animation project Flag Metamorphoses. She started in 2005 a continuously growing series of Flash animations concerning flags, other national symbols, and relations between countries. It’s a work about relations between nations and identities: each artist who creates a flag animation expresses such a relation in his or her own way. So far, the series contains 40 animations by 30 international artists and teams. All animations together include about 100 different nations. Professor Paul Wells about Flag Metamorphoses in his book Re-Imagining Animation: “Thyes’s work is a very particular response to what she describes a very human ‘double wish’ to have both an individual identity and yet belong to a bigger group, often represented through nations, which are themselves ‘imagined communities’. On her choice of flags as iconic Stimuli, Thyes recognises that their symbolism often endures beyond the actual conditions a nation lives through, sometimes remaining largely aspirational (…) Working in such a direct and politicised way, Thyes saw the opportunity to embrace both a democratic approach to the creation of work responsive to a core theme while engaging with other artists, but also in relation to its dissemination to a global audience on the World Wide Web. (…) Inevitably, this level of engagement prompts differing approaches and levels of interrogation. The political level looks at relationships between neighbouring countries, colonial ties and cultural imperialism. On the other hand, the artistic level examines the collapse and revision of largely geometric forms into more amorphous, organic and fluid configurations. (…) Thyes recognised that the key concept of changing cultures was readily revealed through the use of animation’s core language of metamorphosis, and in the way animation could reveal and yet challenge the dense meanings embedded in national image systems. (…) Conceptually, Thyes felt that the best results might be achieved if the metamorphoses themselves took place within a single frame: ‘What I have in mind is generally one changing image, not a film with scenes and cuts.’ (…) This use of the formalist limits of the frame, while addressing the conditions of transition and meaning within it, reflects Thyes’s background and identity as a visual artist. The particular influence of Russian Constructivism and the work of the Bauhaus movement are reflected in her collage technique and political satire.” In the 1990s, she had worked with real flags as installations in public areas: She created and painted new designs and symbols on flags and hung them beside and between official flags in Dusseldorf and Luxembourg.

Malcolm Dickson, director of Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow, in his text Glasgow Styles: “Myriam Thyes’s series Glasgow Styles delineates how Glasgow as a contemporary city reflects its past through the present. Initially what seems like a random visual derive is coherently held together through a detailed narrative that the artist has perceptively encountered and which helps to inform Thyes’ personal topography of our city. This topography is the city’s changing face – a place historically and contemporaneously of contrasts and tensions.”


Thyes participated in the Art Colony Galichnik in Macedonia in Summer 2010. Artists and curators from various Balkan countries worked together. Thyes asked her subjects to answer in their mother tongues (Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian, Macedonian, Bulgarian and Albanian) and then subtitled their replies into English. She created a collage of images and voices in a two-channel video installation, called From Art Colony Galichnik with love (Macedonia 2010). “Thyes documents the thoughts of her subjects and combines their words with shots of the countryside. She creates a sensitive picture of the different personalities and characters, partly by matching the two sets of images. The shots of landscapes and towns depict the origins of the person speaking or emphasise the content of what is being said. Thyes, who has Swiss and Luxembourgian roots, puts the individual at the heart of her work. In doing so, she teils a story of the human needs that exist together at a specific point and place in time – and that, ultimately, reflect the needs that people experience at any time and anywhere in the world.”


LA Freewaves: Video art could be seen on monitors in stores and on billboards on Sunset Boulevard at the then new media festival 2004 in Los Angeles under artistic director Anne Bray. Cathrien Schreuder: “Myriam Thyes’s work A Little Meditation on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood is a good example. In order to maintain its own form, her animated yin-yang symbol ‘fights against the influences of commerce, and in doing so wrests a place for itself in the streetscape. Employing a universal idiom, Thyes visualizes the imbalance within the force field of oublic space. (…) The fact that the work is a good supplement to the streetscape on which it has been shown, including the screens in the train stations of Düsseldorf, the Victory Park Screens in Dallas and various screens in Bern, Bosnia, Melbourne, Manchester and Dublin.”

Already in 2000 and 2001, Strictly Public showed video art at 9 metro stations in North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany), and 2002 in 26 main stations of the federal railroad all over Germany. Among Thyes’s video art works in these programs was ‘A little Meditation’, the animation of the yin yang symbol, shown for example on the big screen at Frankfurt/Main central station.
