Laura Eldret performance - "Fought"
I was commissioned by artist Laura Eldret to provide documentary still images of the event preparation in addition to capturing the audience perspective of the performance.
From Laura Eldret's press release:
Friday 14 October 2011
'Fought' is a restaging of a boxing match, three bouts lasting two minutes each. This is boxing stripped of aggression and transformed into an act that might resemble a dance or choreographed performance. Based on models of battle re-enactment (which have been popular since Roman times and can still be seen today in 'Farb' societies), 'Fought' brings the sponteneity of the fight into collision with the drama of a predetermined situation.
