To Be Alone & Naked


A self - romance

A balminess in the air

The pinkest of sets and brightest of stars

A warmth that envelopes

That pauses

—— Breathes

To be alone

And naked

A new morning arises and the sun beams in

And Out

To be alone

And Naked


At the above.

MU !

21

In a conscious effort to reimagine her process and output, Melbourne artist Marisa Mu entered At the above gallery space ambitious and without a roadmap.

Giving herself permission to freely explore the more chaotic, abstract side of her talent — diverging from the detail and discipline of the style she’s so well known for —
Mu’s two week live-in residency has not only produced a compelling body of work but offered an opportunity for her to explore and challenge her own body, too.


Challenging various curiosities, relationships and her meaning of self-romancing,


Mu’s intimate journey has given rise to vivid illustrations, poems, performances,
paintings and love notes channelling the joyful openness of her approach to the

experience. A strikingly honest exhibition, made more powerful by the artist’s affirming exhibitionism (captured live through her time within the space),

this is a
warm welcome to the world of Marisa Mu.

When it do be —

Sunrise therapy in session

Not quite like them confetti filled parties

Or morning mimosa houses

But bouts of painterly strokes and

Quiet musings to self


This is a dance affair of love

— solutions, resolutions and absolutions


A new romance blooms

Light beams through Her

She whispers —

I’m just here for nothing


but —

that

Sun

Rise
