Bridget Moser is a performance and video artist whose work combines strategies associated with prop comedy, experimental theater, absurd literature, existential anxiety and intuitive dance. Her work references both art history and popular culture and deals with the trouble of constructing self-identity, the discourse of emotion and the body, and the destructive conditions of life under late capitalism. It has been featured in Artforum, Frieze, and Art in America (although she is admittedly Canadian). This lecture covers the development and evolution of her practice over the past 12 years and includes brief live performance and excerpts of video work.
