NEXT TIME: Laure Prouvost
TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON
Get to know Laure Prouvost's work better in this unique brunch cabaret. On the menu : the band La Frontale, conjurer Kader Bueno, singer Bamare Kane, storyteller Ramo and dancer/film sommelier Garance. The culinary art comes from Croquet and the restaurant Octopus.
French because of her origin from Lille, British by her artistic training in London, Belgian because of her studio in Antwerp, Laure Prouvost is an international artist with a marked taste for the cross-fertilization of languages and influences. In LaM the first French laureate of the prestigious Turner Prize (2013) comes home to the museum that marked her childhood. It is also her first large exhibition in her native region.
LaM shows Prouvost's contribution to the French Pavilion during the last Biennale of Venice : Deep See Blue Surrounding You / Vois Ce Blue Profond Te Fondre. The video installation invites you to a road trip between Nanterre, Grigny, Roubaix, the mining basin of Pas-de-Calais, the Palais Idéal du Facteur Cheval, Hauterives, Marseille and Venice. You see a dozen personages of different countries and ages, each of them by means of their own artistic language. Together they form a poetic portrait of the France of the outsiders but just as well the possible representation of a fluid world outside the borders. The octopus of Venetian glass, which completes the installation, symbolically interconnects all the protagonists in the video.
