Laure Prouvost: Stranded By Your Side

Lisson Gallery presents Laure Prouvost’s second exhibition with the gallery in New York and her first since 2018. Known for her films, immersive installations, and playful use of language and (mis)translation, the Turner Prize winner works across an array of mediums to address complex contemporary issues with intimacy and humour. Video, textile, painting, sculpture, text, and installation are employed to grapple with themes of migration, motherhood, and ecological awareness. The presentation follows the debut of ‘Laure Prouvost. Above Front Tears Oui Float’, the first site-specific solo installation for the Light Hall at Norway’s Nasjonalmuseet in October 2022.
