Raucous; Explicit; Rambunctious; Gut wrenching; Side splitting; yet climactically perplexing; Seducing the audience into intoxicating live performance...
We are in cahoots...you and I
Muldoon investigates relationships between socio-political structures and the body. Rooted in performance, her practice spans live work, documentation of its products and traces and the representation of these in other forms. Gender, abjection and ritual are themes around which Muldoon creates her exquisitely adorned alter egos. Mischievously toying with domestic role playing through the re-enactment of mythological narratives. Questioning perpetuated notions of everyday life. Engaging the viewer as participant and as witness.
NO MORE FUN AND GAMES Jesse Jones, Hugh Lane, 2016

The collective responded to the representation of women artists in the Gallery.

5.5.5...5, Inma Pavon, Firkin Crane, Cork, 2016
Having performed with Inma Pavon in I'll Sing You A Song From Around The Town (see below), Muldoon and Pavon had become firm friends. Inma is currently completing a phd in Performance and Dance. She is a lecturer in Dance at Crawford college. At the core of her investigation is the element of Chance. Muldoon was asked by Pavon to take part in a series of responses that would be presented in the Firkin Crane gallery, Cork. A group of fifteen visual artist's, performers and musician's where invited to respond to an image taken from Cecil Beaton's Chinese Journal. Separately each produced work around this image which was then presented simultaneously in one of five spaces. The chance element was further explored by asking the audience to pick a number out of a hat. The no., between 1 and 5, determined which room they could view. It was fascinating my piece worked so well with the two other pieces in our space. Muldoon created a collaborative performance piece.
