Laure Prouvost

Artist and filmmaker Laure PROUVOST (1978, France) lives and works in Antwerp and London. She was educated at Central St. Martins College of Arts and gained an MFA from Goldsmith College. In 2009, she completed the LUX Associate Artists Programme. The concept of language and (mis)communication runs as a common thread through her video and sound works, objects and – often immersive, tactile – installations. Prouvost has received multiple awards, including the Turner Prize in 2013. In 2019, she represented France at the 58th International Art Biennial Venice.
