Paradise on Line
Paradise on Line, 2014 Laure Prouvost
Laure Prouvost's work often engages with language through installation and film, creating an unexpected and often humorous detachment between image, language, and the perceived meaning. Her juxtaposition of images and texts prompt an exploration of the imagination and the Surreal that immerses the viewer in a playful questioning of experience and meaning. Paradise On Line is one of 2 works created in tribute to the late French film maker Chris Marker, accompanying Marker's posthumous show, A Grin Without a Cat at the Whitechapel Gallery in Spring of 2014.
Editions of 40 works, signed and numbered.
