Yorkshire Sculpture International Sculpture Talk: Laure Prouvost
22 October 2020
The second in Yorkshire Sculpture International's series of online international artist talks presents a conversation with Laure Prouvost. In this online talk, Prouvost explores her approach to installations as living works, with sculptural elements and films that function in 3-D, invoking the viewer’s senses of taste and touch. She invites you to take some time to “Dit Learn” (using the French for 'speak', thus pronounced ‘de-learn’ in English) and relearn with her by exploring her current exhibition at Lisson Gallery, London.
Laure Prouvost (b.1967, Lieumeconu, France) lives and works. Here a long list of museums and institutions. A line, interesting things, a comma, a line, a list of residencies and prizes.
