ICA Artists' Moving Image Network Screening
Thu 01 Jan 1970
A cross-section of the Turner Prize winning artists moving image and sound work presented as part of the ICA Artists Moving Image Network.
London-based artist and filmmaker Laure Prouvosts humorous short films employ storytelling to construct precisely edited narratives that toy with language and association. This screening brings together a cross-section of the artists moving image work, alongside a selection of her distinct monologue sound pieces. In 2013 Prouvost won the Turner Prize, for the exhibition Farfromwords shown at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, and Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, Italy (both 2013) and her film installation Wantee, as part of the exhibition Schwitters in Britain at Tate Britain, London (2013). The films featured in both of these installations, Swallow (2013) and Wantee (2013), are included in this programme, as well as a series of earlier works from 2008 onwards. Prouvost has also selected a film by artist John Latham, titled Speak (1975), suggesting her influences and contextualising her practice within the traditions of artist filmmaking.
Please note, this screening contains flashing imagery, strong language and nudity.
This screening is presented in association with the ICA with support from The Foyle Foundation
