Power Play
BY
Cecilia Lundqvist

Power Play is an animated video, consisting of ten different scenes in which two men compete in emphasizing their manhood, using different attributes in a series of nonsense acts. The video comments on and clearly ridicules the stereotypes that the two characters embody in their man-to-man conversation, customs that are generally established in the western culture. The film focuses on this play of acts, to make the viewer clear on how meaningless this behavior is.

About the artist

Cecilia Lundqvist

Cecilia Lundqvist started out with painting, but now works foremost with video and animation. She manages to treat difficult subjects, often from a personal, feminist perspective with a sharp sense of humour.

Cecilia’s video works are shown frequently worldwide and has received recognition in the art and film world alike. Her work is generally narrative and deal with issues like domestic violence, power structures and human behaviour.

She is represented with video works at several art institutions, among them Moderna Museet in Stockholm and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Educated at Royal Collage of Art, Video Department and University Collage of Arts, Crafts & Design, Art Department, Stockholm, Sweden.
