Stephan Muller creates conceptual, installations and mixed media artworks. By merging several seemingly incompatible systems into new protocols, Muller uses a visual vocabulary that addresses social and political issues. The work often resonates as a passage in time and space – an experiential that emerges through and with the observer.
His collected, altered and own conceptual artworks are being confronted as aesthetically resilient, thematically interrelated material for memory and projection. The possible seems true, and the truth exists as a multi-faceted object. With a conceptual approach, he absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice. This personal follow-up and revival of a past tradition is important as an act of meditation upon the modern world.
His works directly respond to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point. Often these are framed instances that would go unnoticed in their original context. By contesting the division between the realm of both memory and experience, he tries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi-layered way. The possibility or the dream of the annulment of a (historically or socially) fixed identity is a constant focal point, perhaps a reflection of the artist's own experience.
Stephan Muller currently lives and works in France and Greece.
