Artist in Residence Anthea Moys


Anthea Moys spends the four days of her residency reflecting on 'a whirlwind of recent travels and challenging experiences'. Journeying into ‘unknown, unexplored and sometimes vulnerable territory: for reflection and for ‘not-doing’’. Moys frames her time under the heading 'Get Out of Your Own Way' and produces a notebook called 'FourdayswithA4' over the period. Anthea’s practice results in a prototype, ‘FourdayswithA4’.

Anthea is an artist, a teacher, a play facilitator, a lifelong learner, runner and a bad singer who started an experimental choir. Anthea wears many hats, but her main interest lies in designing informal and experimental social experiences, where people can connect, create and play.

In 2008 she completed her Masters at Wits with a focus on play and performance in public space. In 2013 she won the Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Performance Art (inaugural) where she created her “Vs.” series, which embraced failure and reimagined winning as the act of learning itself. She has traveled widely as an artist and play facilitator.

Anthea is a practice-led PhD candidate at Northumbria University in Newcastle with a specific focus on sport, play and contemporary performance looking at the games people play in the global north vs the global south. Anthea lives, learns, works and plays (for the most part) in Johannesburg, South Africa.
