On November 27 at 11 am, Laure Prouvost will present her art commission conceived for the Middle Hall.
The installation titled “We would be floating away from the dirty past” will be on view from November 27, 2015 until September 18, 2016.
Laure Prouvost (b. 1978; lives and works in London) creates visually sumptuous installations and films. Enticing her audience into often unusual viewing situations, Prouvost weaves a complex web comprising film, objects, sculpture, drawing, painting, and architectural, sometimes stage-like settings. Each medium brings a divergent layer and dimension to Prouvost’s manner of storytelling, which unsettles linearity as well as apparent dividing lines between truth and fiction in order to reassemble into a vibrant patchwork of a new reality and meaning. Laure Prouvost’s reality is a fast world of contradictory images, impressions, and sounds that accumulate to evoke a rush of feelings and endearing humour.
Laure Prouvost received the prestigious Turner Prize in 2013 and has exhibited internationally at renowned institutions such as Tate Britain and Whitechapel Gallery in London, Portikus in Frankfurt, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein in Berlin, and New Museum in New York. She has participated in international film festivals and won first prize twice at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.
