Inside Ghent-based Belgian artist Sofie Muller’s studio

Belgian artist Sofie Muller lives and works in Ghent. Her installations, sculptures and drawings deal with subjects as the medical phenomenon of blacking out and include references to novels such as  ‘Fahrenheit 451,’ the novel by Ray Bradbury about a dystopian world where no critical thinking is allowed. With her burnt wood, patinated bronze sculptures and so-called smoke drawings – created with nothing other than smoke and fumigation – Muller explores a theme that continuously comes back in her oeuvre: The individual caught between prevailing norms and the urge for freedom.
