Toronto-based performance and video artist Bridget Moser employs strategies associated with experimental theatre, performance art, modern dance, and prop comedy. Moser writes and acts out fragmented texts, combining language with everyday materials, which are used as props, and audio excerpts pulled from popular culture. These incongruous elements destabilize her props’ typical purpose and allow Moser to alternate between states of criticality and humour. There is an inherent struggle in Moser’s work as she attempts to reach an accord between herself and “things,” whether objects or ideas. The resulting artworks are affective, entertaining and wildly unpredictable.
PERFORMANCE & OPENING RECEPTION
