Laresa Kosloff New Futures™, 11 June- 3 July, Sutton Gallery, Melbourne
New Futures TM is the third in a series of short films by Laresa Kosloff with the use of commercial stock footage to explore the sociopolitical conditions of late capitalism. This new film tells the story of a biohacking company that can medically upgrade personalities. Elite clients use the service to enhance their charisma and prosper within the commercial realm. Successful individuals are traded as financial stock, until a group of disgruntled hackers endeavor to disrupt the system.
Laresa was recently included in the Light source commissions as well and the exhibition This brittle Light at Buxton Contemporary, curated by Melissa Keys.
