Elza Sile combines mental imagery with analytic divisions and builds up an interwoven vocabulary of psycho-spatial typologies in flux. She was born 1989, in Latvia and lives in Zurich. In 2019, Sile graduated from ZHdK Zurich. This year, Sile is nominated for the Swiss Art Awards and we will present a solo booth at Liste Art Fair Basel. Recent solo exhibitions include at GALERIE PHILIPPZOLLINGER (Zurich, 2021); unanimous consent (Zurich, 2020) and Kulturfolger Zürich (2020). She has participated in numerous two-person and group shows, such as at KIM? Contemporary Art Center (Riga, 2020); Kunsthalle Zürich (2020); Hamlet (Zurich, 2020) and Galerie Kirchgasse (Steckborn, 2020). In 2020, Sile was a receipiant of the Werkschau Prize Zurich.
