もつれる水滴 / tangled drop

Jörg Müller & Tabaimo

In July 2019, after getting to know each other's works and universes, the Japanese visual artist tabaimo and Jörg Müller decide to start a creation project about adult fears.

"It took several miracles to create this intercontinental work over the last 3 years. Working simultaneously while being 10,000 km apart was new experience for me! Part of the creative process consisted in finding solutions to deal with uncertainty persistence of the pandemic; but the difficulties have opened up new paths which have fueled our creative engines. Everything fell into place in a generous and unexpected way.


For me Juggling is simply working with objects or with what you make an object. I like to challenge myself with new approaches and Tabaimo's work has pushed me towards a fantasy animated world. We have created new objects and ways to animate them [..] For me, Tangled drop is a bit like a music album, in which each piece expresses different atmospheres and universes, it is an intimate and emotional journey... " Jörg Müller
