Local Snake Eats Own Tail
2013, 23:47 minutes, colour, English
23-minute long loop performed continually without stopping for over 4 hours staged in front of a series of landscape paintings by Lawren Harris. Props include the museum's portable stools, a piece of metallic accordion air duct tubing, a small camping coffee set filled with water, and bungee cord.
"I first became familiar with Bridget Moser's performance art when I turned a corner at the AGO in 2013, entered a Group of Seven Gallery, and unexpectedly heard the instrumentals to Eminem and Dr. Dre's "Forgot About Dre." I found Bridget, dressed in a floral suit, at one instance selling us on a cooperate retreat over the minimal beat, and then grumbling about her new "implant," a silver air duct she held to her chest. I was immediately enthralled. The artist's performance refused fixity, moving frenetically between different vignettes and voices on stage, all the while straddling the divide between comedy and art." - Loreta Lamargese in The Editorial Magazine
