Kaspar Müller (born 1983 in Schaffhausen, lives in Basel) is one of those young artists who begin to draw public attention shortly after graduation through presenting their work in numerous exhibitions. Having earned his diploma at HGK Basel in 2006, Müller has since engaged mainly in exhibition activities at Off-Space Vrits in Basel.
Bias, the title of Müller’s first institutional solo exhibition, is a concept that lends itself to quite a variety of interpretations, ranging from “predilection” or “inclination” to mathematical “distortion” or “deviation”. Kaspar Müller has thus chosen a title for his exhibition that challenges visitors to constantly examine and re-examine what they see and experience.
Especially for his exhibition at Kunsthaus Baselland, the artist created three straw figures, an ink drawing, photo collages and sculptural elements, such as several conical objects made of fabric, and a glass table with various objects. All objects in the exhibition have been specifically designed and brought together for this show.
