Three Biographical Attempts – Chapter IV: Self-Creation

17 February 2022 - 9 April 2022



Galerie du Monde is pleased to present groundbreaking German artist Michael Müller’s three-chapter solo exhibition series Drei biographische Versuche [en: Three Biographical Attempts] in Hong Kong from September 2021 to March 2022.

The Drei biographische Versuche exhibition series is like Müller’s personal diary f­rom the past three decades. Through each chapter, Müller unveils his journey of self-discovery, embracing change, and self-formation.

In the first chapter, Müller presented his decade-long journey in the Himalayas that he embarked on in his early 20s, divulging a man’s quest to one’s cultural heritage and faith. Müller believes one must first understand and recognize one’s heritage, one is then able to form one’s own structure of thoughts and belief system.

In the second chapter Der Wolkenvermesser [en: The Cloud Surveyor], Müller delved into specific events and dreams from his journey in the Himalayas, further elaborating on the concepts of feeling and accuracy, the self and the other, and shifting perspectives.

In the final chapter, Das gemachte Ich [en: Self-Creation], Müller exposes personal and intimate events of his life, to elaborate on his belief of fluidity and the motto of “Do It Yourself” — showing us how human beings should construct one’s “self”, one’s relationship with “the other”, and the world, through his large-scale installations filling up an all-white gallery space with special flourescent yellow-colored walls that indicate danger.

Chapter III: Self-Creation will be on view from 17 February to 2 April 2022 in Hong Kong. In view of the current Covid situation in Hong Kong, the exhibition is open to visitors by appointment only; and there will be a limit of 2 guests touring the exhibition in the gallery during each timeslot.
