Laure Prouvost, From the Sky, installation view at Quare gallery, East London, February 2010

London-based artist Laure Prouvost (French, b. 1978) produces visually and aurally rich films and mixed-media installations in which she conflates reality and fiction, words and images, reveling in moments of mistranslation that open up new avenues for meaning. Recent works—including The Artist (2010), Farfromwords (2013), and Wantee (2013), for which Prouvost won the prestigious Turner Prize that year—offer immersive installations that combine painting, sculpture, and drawing alongside moving image work. As a part of the Walker’s ongoing initiative to introduce international living artists to American audiences, Prouvost’s presentation comprises a sculptural video installation in the Medtronic Gallery, complemented by the artist’s first evening-length ensemble performance piece in the McGuire Theater, organized in collaboration with EMPAC.
