The form of artist Yasmin Müller’s works reminds of furniture, more precisely objects to sit on, like chairs, armchairs or a chaise longue, but they’ve been stripped of their function.

“Caramel – as sweet and soft this exhibition-title might sound, the works that Yasmin Müller (born 1977 in Villingen-Schwenningen) is showing in her solo-show at Cruise & Callas are nothing like that, at all.” says gallery Cruise & Callas. “The artist arranged five black metal objects in the gallery space, initially confronting the viewer with a cold aesthetic and a repelling strength. Some objects build groups, some stand solitarily in the space.”

“Stripped of their function since seating surfaces, back and arm rests are perforated by bars or are even non-existent, it is impossible to sit on them. The single metal bars are irregularly intertwined and form repetitive patterns.”

“Looking at them with the white background of the wall, the graphical lines of the bars outgrow their original function and autonomously develop further from their original form, they pierce through space and incorporate their surrounding. They embody what they actually would embrace, thus transforming from a mere functional object to an individualized subject.”

 

Caramel, the exhibition, is at the Cruise & Callas gallery from March 1 until April 12, 2014.
