MOVEMENTS OF THE HEART
Imposed confinement can cause feelings of anxiety and distress. To combat these feelings, Sofie Muller developed her own ritual and collected sprouted onions during spring. On these onions she wrote or carved small intentions. She sculpted hearts around them in clay or wax and casted them in bronze. During summer, Muller continued this project during an artist residence in Palazzo Monti, Brescia. Being in this area, she took the opportunity to do extensive research to Leonardo Da Vinci's anatomic sketches and his theories on the human heart. 500 years later Muller humbly follows in Da Vinci's footsteps, conducting her own research to the heart, a universal symbol worldwide.
The result is a new series of 150 bronze hearts. Each heart is unique.
10 galleries from Mexico to New Zealand, from France to Austria will present this new series of hearts simultaneously on March 21, 2021, the beginning of spring. This day marks the start of spring in Europe – a time celebrating new life – and the ideal moment to send out a positive message after a year of battling Covid-19.

The pandemic has heightened environmental awareness all over the world. For this reason, Sofie Muller has decided to get involved in reforestation by supporting the non-profit organization "one tree planted". For each bronze heart sold, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to this organization, and with each heart sold, approximately 50 new trees will be planted.
