Power Plays is the catalogue from the exhibition by the same name. It presents two new film works, Muster and Fought, by artist Laura Eldret. The films they 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.

Also presented will be ephemera, documentation and new works related to the two film works. Power Plays continues artist Laura Eldret’s interest in the cultural iterations of individuals and groups that define themselves according to their passionate adherence to particular ways of being.
