Rebecca Moss, Thick-skinned, video still, 2018.
Rebecca Moss critically examines heroic narratives through absurdist gestures. Her videos speculate upon ecological instability, humanity's relationship to the natural world, and how a feminist perspective could transform our position on the planet. She is also interested in how slapstick performance can speak to power through humour.
