Throughout her practice, Prouvost consistently returns to themes of escape into unfamiliar worlds or imaginings of unexpected alternative environments. A strong narrative impulse propels her artistic output, resulting in immersive, trans-medial installations with interwoven story lines that combine fiction and reality. Stepping away from traditional linear narratives, Prouvost crafts sensual environments laden with playful mistranslation that open a space for the viewer to grapple with the unstable relationship between imagination and reality.
