Lives and works in Antwerp

Laure Prouvost is a French multi-media artist. Known for her immersive and mixed- media installations that combine film and installation in humorous and idiosyncratic ways, Prouvost’s work addresses miscommunication and things getting lost in translation. She combines existing and imagined personal memories with artistic and literary references to create complex film installations that twist fiction and reality. The artist received her BFA from Central St Martins, London in 2002 and studied towards her MFA at Goldsmiths College, London. She also took part in the LUX Associate Programme.

In 2011, Prouvost won the MaxMara Art Prize for Women and was the recipient of the Turner Prize in 2013. She represented France at the 58th International Art Biennial Venice in 2019.
