Explore additional facets of Laure Prouvost’s captivating film work
Laure Prouvost has taken audiences and critics by storm after the opening of the exhibition 'Our elastic arm hold in tight through the claouds' – a total installation incorporating a new major film work. On the occasion of the exhibition, Kunsthal Charlottenborg now presents a very special film programme presenting a selection of the artist’s works, on from 1 June – 4 July 2021 at Kunsthal Charlottenborg’ cinema.
Laure Prouvost works with a richly imaginative artistic language encompassing film and installation as well as sculpture, sound and performance. She has just been nominated for this year’s New: Vision Award at the CPH: DOX 2021 festival and is currently featured at the group exhibition MOTHER! at Louisiana.
The critically acclaimed solo exhibition Our elastic arm hold in tight through the claouds, on view at Kunsthal Charlottenborg until 8 August, is now supplemented with a selection of Laure Prouvost’s film works specially curated to constitute an addition to the exhibition. Each in their own way, the nine chosen film works showcase the artist’s characteristic lo-fi cinematic aesthetic and her unique ability to tell stories – to unfold language and communication in ways that evoke very special moods and narratives. The programme ranges from Prouvost’s work Wantee, originally part of the installation for which she received the prestigious British Turner Prize in 2013, to a series of brand-new short films created during the lockdown in 2021.
