Broadcasting globally throughout October, Laure Prouvost takes centre stage on the CIRCA platform with a new multi-media commission exploring the migration of other-than-humans, poetically navigating and providing deeper context surrounding questions of borders and immigration.
“Could we be birds, sea animals who belong to no nation? Free to follow our own migration routes? This work for CIRCA addresses urgent questions of earthly survival, such as other-than-human and human rights.
The video presentation will address the passer by, suggesting the possibility to become one another in empathy with all materiality. In conjunction, the Piccadilly Circus activation is an octopus (visible on AR) taking rest, taking a break after a long voyage marching with placards and protest signs from a gathering she held of other-than-human comrades on a ride seeking togetherness in union.Could one become a bird flying across continents, or an octopus swimming across oceans thinking through touch. Giving us a moment to pause and imagine a more fluid future. Could we imagine migration routes for all species, humans and non humans. WE AS ONE belonging to one world, could we dream of NO MORE FRONT TEARS?”

ABOUT LAURE PROUVOST
Language – in its broadest sense – permeates the video, sound, installation and performance work of Laure Prouvost. Known for her immersive and mixed-media installations that combine film and installation in humorous and idiosyncratic ways, Prouvost’s work addresses miscommunication and ideas becoming lost in translation. Playing with language as a tool for the imagination, Prouvost is interested in confounding linear narratives and expected associations among words, images and meaning. She combines existing and imagined personal memories with artistic and literary references to create complex film installations that muddy the distinction between fiction and reality. At once seductive and jarring, her approach to filmmaking employs layered storytelling, quick edits, montage and wordplay and is composed of a rich, tactile assortment of images, sounds, spoken and written phrases. The videos are often shown within immersive environments which comprise found objects, sculptures, painting and drawings, signs, furniture and architectural assemblages, that are rendered complicit within the overarching narrative of the installation.
