About the artwork
Laure Prouvost’s limited edition print features one of the artist’s signature pink bottom paintings. Many of Prouvost’s film and installation works centre on the character of her lost ‘grandfather’, a fictional fellow artist who "didn't really like conceptual art – he liked making bottoms".
Known for her immersive and mixed-media installations that combine film and installation in humorous and idiosyncratic ways, Prouvost’s work addresses miscommunication and moments lost in translation. Playing with language as a tool for the imagination, Prouvost is interested in confounding linear narratives and expected associations among words, images and meaning.
