Bridget Moser: My Crops Are Dying But My Body Persists
Remai Modern presents a new solo exhibition by Canadian artist Bridget Moser. One of the country’s leading young artists, Moser has received national recognition for her satirical performance and video projects. Drawing from prop comedy, experimental theatre and performance art, Moser uses humour to explore themes of futility and failure, confusion and loneliness, and the general awkwardness of being alive. This exhibition marks Moser’s first major solo museum exhibition in Canada.

My Crops Are Dying But My Body Persists is a video work that incorporates strange and sometimes unsettling images of food, the artist’s body and decorative objects. Comprised of short scenes and excerpts, the artist builds a humourous and bizarre mise-en-scène that explores themes of discomfort, loneliness and fears about the future.
Bridget Moser has presented her work at galleries across Canada, including the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Mercer Union, the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, Oakville Galleries, Vancouver Art Gallery, Western Front, MSVU Art Gallery, PLATFORM Centre, and the Dunlop Art Gallery. She has presented projects throughout the US and Europe and has been a resident artist at Fondazione Antonio Ratti in Como, Italy, as well as lead faculty at The Banff Centre. Her work has been featured in publications including Canadian Art, C Magazine, Art in America, Artribune Italy, and The Dance Current. She has been shortlisted for the Sobey Art Award representing the region of Ontario.
