'FAÇADE: Laure Prouvost' at KANAL-Centre Pompidou, Brussels, Belgium
22 March 2023
On 25 March, Laure Prouvost inaugurates the KANAL-Centre Pompidou's FAÇADE series with an opening parade and performances.
For the FAÇADE series, KANAL invites three artists to each create a work that, for a period of six months, will cover the immense exterior of the museum's future showroom.
Laure Prouvost inaugurates the series with a colourful composition of images and messages directed to the city and its inhabitants. The work sees flowers and plants emerge from the showroom’s skeletal depths, creating a post-apocalyptic garden. Here and there among the teeming flora, voluptuous flesh and tentacles appear, while flags bearing slogans undulate in the wind. At the tips of the vines, two flowers come face to face while the words "we belong" hover below them.
On the occasion of the opening on March 25, a parade complete with a brass band and majorettes will leave from Place Sainte-Catherine towards the KANAL construction site for a celebratory gathering.
