Power Plays at the AUB

A new exhibition by artist Laura Eldret opens in TheGallery at The Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) on Friday 14th September – 12th October 2012. Power Plays, which presents two new film works, Muster and Fought by Eldret, explore issues of artistic authorship, personal empowerment, choice, obligation and how powers constantly shift. The exhibition courts the seductive power of the spectacle, exploring how individuals create, record and retell their individual and collective identities.

Fought (2011-12) is a three-part project: a live event in which a boxing match was re-enacted; a documentary film of the re-enactment; and a play based on the documentary film. The restaging of the boxing match was held at a venue in central London and witnessed by a crowd of artists, curators and others, many of whom had never seen a boxing match before. ‘Power Plays’ will feature the documentary film, which was made in collaboration with BWB boxing and filmmaker Renee Vaughan Sutherland.
