Laure Prouvost: Towards Burrow Me

Rupert would like to invite you all to an evening of films, stories and conversations with artist Laure Prouvost. The night will serve as an introduction to Prouvost’s upcoming solo show at Rupert which will span a period of months beginning in November through to summer of 2015, culminating in the creation of an underground tunnel designed to host a video work.

The artist invites the audience to join her for a night of digging into the past and into the future; digging in the footsteps of the artist’s grandfather who once dug a tunnel underneath his home, and has disappeared within it.

A selection of recent works by Prouvost will be screened on the night, followed by a public conversation with the artist, later joined by curator and writer Isla Leaver-Yap. The program for the evening includes: How to Make Money Religiously (2014), Wantee (2013), Grandma’s Dream (2013), The Artist (2010) and others.

In her films and installations, Prouvost uses narrative with recurrent confusions and mistranslations to upset traditional relationships between image, language and perception and awaken the imagination. By further positioning work within carefully staged environments, she immerses audiences in a uniquely constructed world where unbelievable scenarios come to life.

Ideally here would be Laure prouvost Biographie,
