An Exhibition as a Copy: Michael Müller Solo Exhibition
Why We Recommend it
The prominent German artist’s first exhibition in Hong Kong and East Asia will showcase more than twenty conceptual multimedia works that are emblematic of his artistic pursuit for exploring the intrinsic relationship between the original and the copy.
The newly-created works on show, which come in the form of drawing, painting, sculpture and 3D print, are made from a wide spectrum of unconventional materials, such as blood, urine, hair, egg yolk, fat, bone and semen, among others.
Entitled An Exhibition as a Copy, Michael Müller’s exhibition consists of four pairs or groups of similar exhibits that investigates the duality of the original and the copy.
The juxtaposition of the peculiarities of the artworks’ surfaces underscores the form as well as instigates a dialogue with each other; it also allows for deviations to stand out. The relationship between model and reproduction, original and copy thus becomes increasingly unclear.
