Swedish artist and filmmaker Annika Ström's work is in line with much of the self-reflexive Conceptual art to come out of the 1970s. Brandishing such one-liners as "I am a better artist than I deserve," Ström's wryly humorous work calls attention to its status as a work of art and Ström's status as an artist. But unlike most conceptual art, Ström's work includes a level of insecurity and even directly engages with current forms of technology.
Ström's work was shown at the Venice Biennale in 2007. Additionally, Ström has been a part of numerous group shows, including one exhibition at the Moderna Museet.
