'Laure Prouvost: Out Move In You' at Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne, Australia

20 March 2024

Laure Prouvost's first major exhibition in Australia, 'Oui Move In You', continues the annual ACCA International series of solo exhibitions by influential artists on the international stage. Encompassing new commissions and a survey of existing work over the past decade, the exhibition will transform ACCA’s unique architecture into a labyrinthine and other-worldly environment, introducing Australian audiences to the imaginative, absorbing and frequently absurdist hallmarks of Prouvost’s diverse artistic practice.

Acknowledging the radical, experimental, and pathfinding figures who came before her, 'Oui Move In You' conceptually explores the roles and legacies of grandmother and grandfather, the maternal spaces of mother and child, and contemporary social spaces in which humans commune with the natural world. The exhibition is composed as a celebration of liberation and imagination, the sensual and sensuous, being and belonging, care and connection. Taking audiences on a journey from the subterranean realm of the underground and the subconscious, opening into the bodily and earthly realm exploring sensuality, desire and the fecundity of nature, the exhibition culminates with a release into the sky and celestial plains of weight and weightlessness, lightness and gravity.

The exhibition runs from 23 March – 10 June 2024.
