This exhibition will be the largest organised to date on the practice of artist Laure Prouvost. Offering a wide-angle panorama of Provoust’s career as – ranging from a key selection of her formative “monologue” video works, through to recent major installations – the exhibition will seek to portray the work of an artist developing complex thought through artistic languages. Taking a more acute direction, this museum survey will delve into the philosophical depths of Prouvost’s work, and will consider notions of language and communication, particularly of pre-verbal and non-verbal communication, as well as their incompatibility with the verbal. Including new works produced by the artist, the exhibition will be a total environment emphasising the experimental, layered and intuitive aspects of the artist’s practice to date. It will offer a key moment to reflect on the practice of somebody considered one of the most original artists of her generation. The artist was recipient of the Max Mara Prize in 2012 and the Turner Prize in 2013. In 2019, she will represent France at the 58th Biennale of Venice. Prouvost lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium.
