Lisson Gallery

'Laure Prouvost: Oma-je' at Remai Modern, Saskatoon, SK, Canada

27 June 2023

Opening on 30 June 2023, 'Oma-je' will be Laure Prouvost’s largest exhibition to date in North America.

It celebrates her relationship to artistic predecessors including John Latham, Louise Bourgeois, Agnes Varda, and Niki de Saint Phalle, amongst others. The exhibition also transitions into more recent works that look to embodied ways of knowing for inspiration, shifting from Grandfather to Grandmother and forefather to foremother.

The exhibition includes iconic pieces by Prouvost such as Grandma’s Dream (2013), End Is Her Story (2017), This Means (2019), Four For See Beauties (2022), and an immersive newly commissioned work titled Ohmmm age Oma je ohomma mama, premiering simultaneously at Remai Modern, Saskatoon, and Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna in 2023.

The latest installation focuses on the figure of the grandmother as an ancestor and trailblazer. The work will transform the gallery into a theatre of object relating to memory, imagination, and inheritance. Visitors will be invited to travel through time and lose themselves in the dark, complex play between past and present, individual and society, and between modern and ancient concepts, relationships, materials and techniques.

From 30 June 2023 – 28 January 2024. Find further information via Remai Modern.
