In conjunction with the festival düsseldorf photo+, JSC Düsseldorf will present a screening program with works by French artist Laure Prouvost (*1978 in Croix, France; lives and works in Brussels). Prouvost’s video works and immersive installations investigate language as a means of communication. By challenging the familiar relationship of images, language, and perception, she plays with the habits and expectations of viewers. Prouvost melds real and fictional material as well as autobiographical and collective stories into new, nonlinear narratives. In a rapid montage of images, the artist combines shots of people, nature, and everyday objects with written words, sounds, and voiceovers to create surreal, sensual, and intimate moments.
