Elizabeth Hudson - Power Cut

About the show

The exhibition Power Cut is a new body of work by young London-based artist Elizabeth Hudson, which explores feelings of powerlessness. Working across a range of media, Hudson uses absurdity and exaggeration to face her lack of power.

The exhibition takes its title from a work in the show that is based on the artist’s conflation of strength and power in the biblical story Samson and Delilah. Hudson has created a drone (Delilah) that harvests the hair from the 50 people in the world that she perceives as having most power over her life. This hair has then been fashioned into a wig (Crown) for the artist to wear to reclaim their power and take it for her own. The wig has been made in the style of the elaborate headpieces worn by the aristocracy in the 18th century (as epitomised by Marie Antoinette).
