Daniela Müller, Artist in Short-term Residence
August 04 to 30, 2021
Daniela Müller studied Fine Arts at the Zurich University of the Arts and at the Academy of the Arts in Oslo. She completed her MA at the Zurich University of the Arts. From 2012–15 she curated the ad-hoc gallery One Night Only Zurich and in 2021, she initiated the artist run space Aloïse in Basel. Her work has been shown at Stellwerk Kassel, Studio XX Montréal and Helmhaus Zurich and featured in She Performs Oxford. She received a studio grant for the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris by the city of Zurich for her video work Concerning Cats.
Daniela Müller understands the multispecies body as human, non-human and non-living, and she is particularly interested in the intra-space between these entities as they touch and thereby shape each other. In her video works she uses language as a system of order, which however emerges as a constantly unstable element. Within collaborative groups she works with collective practices and develops publications and writing/reading based performances.
