In her mixed media/sound installations Evamaria Müller is interested in
representations of the mystification of nature and science and analyses
different storytelling techniques by constructing spacial compositions
that invite the visitor to engage with its layered components in an
exhibition-like setting. Originally coming from a background in
theatre-/film-/media-theory and stage design she works with sound, video
and text by collecting, analysing and re-contextualising elements of
film and media and creating copies and forgeries in the process.
In Skagaströnd she plans to expand her island-project which reverts to
the historic development of the motif of the island and explore the
textforms diary, logbook and report. The island is a place of isolation,
retreat and recommencement, of the supernatural and the utopia. The
fascination around islands is historically ingrained. For some hundred
years there was a distinct oral tradition that told stories about
travel, discovery and adventure that combine geography and mythology.
