Rebecca Moss

Rebecca Moss (b.1991, Essex, UK) is an artist whose work critically examines heroic narratives through humorous and absurdist gestures, which can take a wide variety of forms across performance, video and sculpture.

Her work responds to landscapes, including wild, rural and urban, from a feminist perspective. She is especially interested in how humorous interventions can speak to power. This has led to projects with a wide variety of outcomes, including a 14 tonne installation of concrete Baroque lions along an esplanade in Somerset (Lions, 2015) and an artist residency where she became stuck in the Pacific Ocean on a bankrupt container ship off of the coast of Japan (International Waters, 2016.)

An ongoing body of work that she returns to is a series of video performances, where she performs to camera in the Essex landscape. In these videos, she stages actions between her body and its environment, performing with low budget props and costumes. Inspired by slapstick comedy, she wishes to emphasise a dynamic between her body and the world which is open, porous and reciprocal.
