FOCUS Laure Prouvost

Laure Prouvost likes to play with objects, words, language… and images. She’s an internationally recognised artist, notably awarded the Turner prize in 2013 and invited as a guest artist at the French pavilion of the 2019 Venice Biennale. Since the 2000s, she has been feeding on her daily life as an artist, a woman and a mother, which she absorbs, digests, transforms and restores in all the forms able to translate her whimsical imagination: films, installations, sculptures, performances she combines with joy and malice. Fugitive impressions, notebooks, capsules, witticism, phantasmagorical staging, the moving image has permeated her prolific work since the beginning. For the first time at FIDMarseille, we are presenting a programme devoted exclusively to this protean facet of her universe, which generously and often impertinently exposes a sensory relationship with the world.
