Rebecca Moss presents an evening of film work and discussion about feminisms and slapstick comedy.

In early silent slapstick cinema, women’s bodies take a variety of shapes and forms. A performance as panel discussion comprising speakers from the art world and comedy explores ideas around humour, this slapstick body, and gender, alongside an installation of overlooked silent slapstick cinema performances from the early 1990s and new video works by the artist.

Artist ( Description ): 

Rebecca Moss is an artist based in Essex. Taking inspiration from slapstick and absurd comedy, she stages anti-monumental interventions on camera. While inspired by the site-responsive gestures and approaches of Psychogeographic and Situationist practice, she notes a distinct lack of feminist voices within these discourses. Her work manifests across a variety of media, but often takes the form of short edited videos documenting absurdist and humorous scenarios performed for camera. She was shortlisted for the Future Generation Art Prize in 2017 and is currently a PEER Notices commissioned artist, PEER Gallery, Hoxton, London. rebeccamoss.co.uk
