    Información

    Laure Prouvost presents a two-part installation inspired by the aesthetic and sensuous pleasures of Italy. Referencing the genre of panoramic painting, Prouvost creates a cylindrical structure interspersed with collages and monitors. This immersive environment leads to an idyllic inner space revealing Swallow (2013), a film showing fragments of footage, from birds to women bathing in waterfalls. Exploring language and translation, Prouvost plays on the historic idea of visiting the Mediterranean for inspiration.

    Born in 1978 in Croix-Lille, France, Laure Prouvost lives and works in London. Since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2002, her work has been exhibited extensively across the UK and internationally.

    The Max Mara Art Prize nurtures female artists based in the UK, through the commission of a new work resulting from a 6-month residency in Italy. The judges for this edition of the Prize included Iwona Blazwick (Chair), artist Lisa Milroy, gallerist Amanda Wilkinson, art collector Muriel Salem and critic Gilda Williams.
