Laure Prouvost’s distinct installations are focused on domestic objects, film and sound. Working with a range of media, she is best known for her video work, where her hectic use of the cinematic implies loose narratives based on a single event, often misleading us according to her whim. These events turn quickly from amusement to exasperation, despite the fact she often tries to instil order into these situations.
Prouvost plays with language, translation and authority, with often straightforward ideas such as the use of basic hand painted signs which are used as tools to instruct us. She seduces and entertains us with her disconnected imagery and mesmerising juxtapositions of text and image.
