‘Laure Prouvost, wot hit talk’ 

What's the connection between language and reality? Where lies the boundary between truth and fabrication? Laure Prouvost, by juxtaposing text with images, creates a surreal narration and establishes new contexts and meanings of words In her works, the artist analyses what happens when a typo, a slip of the pen, perhaps even a distortion or over-interpretation sneaks into a word or a text.

Laure Prouvost is a winner of the Turner Prize as well as Max Mara Art Prize. She creates films, installations, performances. She exhibited her works in Tate Britain, ICA, Serpentine, BFI Galleries, New Museum.
