Subject 3: Laure ProuvostPosted: January 5, 2016
Laure Prouvost is a modern artist who uses a combination of collage, video and installation within her work. There are elements of sexuality within the work e.g. Swallow. However, the provocation shown within the work goes against the idea of the male gaze. Prouvost lets the viewer know when to perform certain acts, for example ‘stop breathin’ or ‘you can smoke if you like’ which makes her the dominant force within her work. The use of shots which may be seen as unrelated relate in a way due to the feeling created by the shots all being the same. There are also elements of humour within the work as well as narration, which is something I want to combine within my own video work.
