Born in 1981, Luxembourg, Sali Muller is an installation and sculptor artist who uses reflective surfaces in order to address universal feelings of self-doubt, self-reflection and self-revelation. Having previously received her MA in Visual Arts at the University Marc Bloch of Strasbourg, France in 2006, she followed courses of History of art courses in Germany until 2009.Analyzing the human habits of vision and perception, Sali Muller questions the concepts of selfishness, vanity and ultimately of the finiteness of our visual culture. Employing reflective surfaces alongside video, light and sound installations, Muller not only investigates the role of the individual in relation to him or herself and the environment around, but also the way human beings alienate themselves from nature and from this narcissistic need of self reflection  leading to question self-perception.

 

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. 

With her Concept Art, Sali Muller investigates the role of the individual in relation to himself and his environment. Not least of all, she addresses the issue of how human beings alienate themselves from nature and from their own self-image. The artist’s repertoire includes photography, objects, light- and sound installations. 

Her work stimulates reflection and, quite significantly, consists of mirrors which for the most part do not reflect images and have been treated by the artist in various ways. The mirror-works belong to an aspect of her oeuvre in which the artist focuses on the subjectivity of perception. She takes the mirror as the point of departure for a narrative of anti-reflection. 

With her dysfunctional mirror works, Sali Muller directs our attention to the possibility of getting to the bottom of our visual culture. She does this by treating the contemporary obsession with the transparency of all private processes with skepticism and irony – one need think only of the folly of self-revelation that runs rampant on Facebook and other Internet platforms.
