Muddy

Emmeline De Mooij
2010


Created in conjunction with de Mooij’s exhibition at Capricious Space in 2010, Muddy, or the inexplainable growth of gravity holds an idiosyncratic variety of original and found photographs (in full-color and duotones), screen prints, and watercolor paintings.

“Gravity grows and my overweight forces me to descend into the ground—behind the skin, beyond daylight. I have signed up for the course ‘Cave Diving Inside the Brain’. When I sink up to my knees into the brown substance, I find myself face to face with a troll. She introduces herself as Muddy and tells me about the ultimate wish for weightlessness. I say, ‘Yes, I see, but, just these heavy clothes I bought myself’…”—Emmeline de Mooij
