East of Elsewhere is pleased to present Mouhammad Mouselli’s first exhibition in Berlin, In limbo, flower is cloud, and coffee doesn’t have to go. The exhibition takes its name from Mouselli’s ekphrastic poem, one of his first in English. In limbo consists of nine small and three large watercolor and charcoal works on paper, as well as two digital drawings displayed on televisions. Whimsical oblong shapes shift in pale pink, green and violet water colors. Charcoal shading mimics this movement. The shapes seem to gravitate towards each other, forming floating ecosystems. Rounded lines and circles overlap and enclose in an an embracing gesture. Looking at these drawings is akin to watching shape shifting clouds. The works seem to almost drift around the gallery’s single room, hung above and below eye level. The show also stages a playful confrontation between mediums. As the televisions confront the wall works that gaze down from above, the works offer two modes of exploring color and space.
