Myriam Ziehli (*1989) studied photography at the Vevey School of Photography (CEPV) in Vevey, followed by studies in anthropology and art history at the Universities of Lausanne and Neuchâtel. At the CEPV she realized a project called La Montagne Dorée (The Golden Mountain), in which she addressed the topic of the hotel industry in central Switzerland. The idea was to create a catalog for a fictitious theater play that mixed facts and the local myth of the Teufelsbrücke. The book was shortlisted for the Mack First Book Award and the Aperture First Book Award. She is currently working on a photographic project called Hieroglyphs_la nef des fous, which was presented at Standard/Deluxe in November 2016, and whose first part, Wetiko Manifesto, was an artist’s book based on ecological issues.
Besides her photographic practice, she has curated shows such as Imago at Forma Art Contemporain, Hordes et Nuées with Danaé Panchaud at the Vevey School of Photography (CEPV) and Space anomaly remains,... at Urgent Paradise.
In 2014, together with the photographer, Anne Golaz, she founded the distribution platform Aaluägä Books. In 2016 she joined the artist-run space Urgent Paradise as a co-director. Lastly, she prepared a show called Tristes Anthropiques with Céline Burnand and Nina Wiesnagrotzki at Le Cabanon, the artspace at the University of Lausanne.
