Antrianna Moutoula

Born in Athens (GR,1994), I have been living in Amsterdam since 2012. Primarily language-based my artistic work spans performance, film, radio, and writing. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Gerrit Rietveld Academie and a Master of Performance Practices from the HOME OF PERFORMANCE PRACTICES, ArtEZ University of the Arts. The subject matter of my work tends to reflect moments of everydayness, especially the ordinary and uneventful ones.

My ongoing research centres around nonstop languaging, an autotheoretical practice in which I perform streams of consciousness by tracing my thoughts through language simultaneously in spoken and written form. Streams made of speculations, instant patterns, tricks-to-trick-me, the feminine voice. I perform autotheory by merging methods of articulating autobiography (carrying the self in language) with methods of forming and digesting theory. The result is an overload of words, thoughts, citations, lyrics, theories, and memories, that seek their own linearity.  By engaging with this practice in various contexts, I aim to contribute to a renegotiation of the confinements of knowledge production within artistic academic discourse. Always seeking ephemeral encounters with necessary others, I explore nonstop languaging as a biweekly radio performance at Radio WORM.

My works have been presented in the Netherlands (a.o. Stedelijk Museum, Frascati, Perdu, 4bid gallery, The Kunstkapel, WORM), internationally (a.o. Radiophrenia/SCT, Treno sto Rouf/GR, x-church/UK, Mutant Radio/GA, OUTNOW!/DE), and online.

I am intrigued by art forms that suggest an intersection between art and theory. I am currently developing a series of autotheoretical video essays, the first of which (not everything inside of you is yours) was screened in early 2023. My research on autotheory continues with a focus on citational practices, and the development of a new performance lecture exploring the multivocal aspect of nonstop languaging, under the working title citations are bricks.
