Interview: Melli Müller
Luca Curci talks with Melli Müller during BORDERS – Venice International Art Fair 2021, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello.

Melli Müller is a Berlin-based artist, dancer and choreographer. Her work is about the space between reality and fiction. She is interested in the tension that exists between life and the performing state, between the stage and public space. Her major interest lies in the possibility of creating intimate spaces in order to be able to question concepts of relationships, their agreements and limitations.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Melli Müller – For me art needs to confront the audience.

LC – What are you currently working on?
MM – At the moment I am working on the topic of relationships with Real Dolls.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in society? And contemporary art?
MM – The work of an artist is to create content. Artists depict what’s happening in society. They identify gaps and develop new ways of thinking and behaving within our common social structure.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
MM – I think the most important part of my work is to observe.

LC – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?
MM – My work is about the line between fiction and reality. My body and my skills are the centres of my work. My major interest lies in the possibility of creating intimate spaces in order to be able to question concepts of relationships, their agreements and limitations.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
MM – No, it’s part of preexisting works. Territory Part 1 and 2 was created in 2020 and is part of my research about intimate and technical contact with the body.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
MM – I think Territory Part1 and 2 works very well for the topic of Borders Art Fair Bodies + Cities Skin. In Part 1 he is hitting her until she gives in and in part 2 she is hitting him until he gives in.

LC – What do you think about ITSLIQUID Platform?
MM – Communication with the project coordinator was very good. I also enjoyed meeting the team in person at the Venice Art Fair.
