Inspired by what David Cronenberg calls « the creative cancer » (to adopt the disease’s point of view while filming the body), she aims to represent the world through an organic prism. These kinds of new forms of dissections are part of what she calls the body gaze. The using of body fluids in her work is as a symbolic than a formal approach. The symbolic part refers to the poetic aspect that body fluids have regarding to the humors theory (the fact that the body is filled with four different fluids linked to the four natural elements). It is also a way to speak about body emancipation. The formal part refers to technical issues : how to paint the inherent movement of fluids ? How to represent viscous liquids and living matter ?
Carole Mousset is a multimedia artist questioning the body and our relationship to intimacy. She explores the human interiority with an erotic approach. Her work carries a vision of the body as a fluid container in constant mutation. She works and lives in Brussels.
