Laure Prouvost. Ring, Sing and Drink for Trespassing
22.06.2018 - 09.09.2018

For her first solo show in a Parisian institution, Laure Prouvost invites visitors to embark on a geographical and mental escape. The exhibition opens the possibility to experience an ambiguous site, between a wasteland and a post-apocalyptic garden. It is home to a lonely octopus, a lush fountain, or branches sprouting mammary growths and buttock implants.

A gardener and a storyteller, the artist plays with language, neologisms and hybrid objects, with mistranslations, linguistic slippages and transpositions. She thus expresses the desire, which is indeed sometimes a need, for escape, to go beyond boundaries and exist elsewhere.

She will represent France at the 2019 Venice Biennale.
