"CRYSTAL CLEAR" (2017) as seen at the IKOB Museum of Contemporary Art, Eupen, Belgium

Frank-Thorsten Moll Director, IKOB, Museum of Contemporary Art

Sali Muller is a sensitive analyst of habits of vision and perception; she focuses on concepts such as selfishness and, ultimately, finiteness. She is a young, up-and-coming sculptor who focuses primarily, within the medium of the installation, on the impossibility of depicting a person.

Sali Muller (* 1981 in Luxembourg) has been working as a freelance object and installation artist since 2010. Under the name of 21Artstreet, Muller took over an abandoned workshop in Kehlen (Luxembourg) and transformed it into a studio and exhibition space for artists. The artist already had solo exhibitions in Luxembourg, Germany and France. In 2017, her works will be shown in a museum exhibition in Eupen, Belgium for the first time.In her acute, large-scale mirror works, Muller deals with a spectrum of psychosocial issues such as self-awareness, identity and interpersonal communication. With her installations, Muller manipulates our perception of subject and subjectivity. She breaks up the connections between space, time and identity in order to investigate what it means to maintain individuality in a society of constant repetitions. With skepticism and irony, the artist draws attention to the obsession of our media-dominated visual culture: making everything transparent.
