In 2013, Laure Prouvost won the prestigious Turner Prize for her work Wantee - a video installation telling the true/fictional story of her grandfather's relationship with Kurt Schwitters. The work, commissioned by Grizedale Arts and the Tate Britain, is a poignant example of Laure's immersive filmmaking style, her tangling of narratives and her bewildering montage echnique. Words separate from their normal meanings; objects, imagery, drawings and symbols combine in dizzying combinations; the artist tunnels through established truth and fiction, creating an onslaught of sensory and logical stimulus. She has exhibited at Carlier Gebauer (Berlin), Tate Britain (London), Consortium Dijon, MMK Frankfurt, Kunstmuseum Luzern, CCA Laznia (Gdansk), Walker Art Centre (Minneapolis), Witte de With CCA (Rotterdam), Hangar Biccoca (Milan), State of Concept (Athens), Fahrenheit (Los Angeles), Haus Der Kunst (Munich), e-flux (NYC), CAPC Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux, New Museum (NYC), Extra City Kunsthal (Antwerp), The Hepworth (Wakefield) and at many other institutions around the globe.

Laure's films are often combined with sculptural/3D installations, creating immersive environments in which her unruly conceptual ruptures can unfold - her 2015 work Dear dirty dark drink drift down deep droll (in der dole) starts with a bookshelf stacked with poetry and travel tomes - the bookshelf hides a secret door which plunges disorientated visitors into a pitch-black corridor, through which they will eventually feel their way to the screening room.

Laure's course will burrow deep into the labyrinthine business of conceptual installation art, examining a diverse range of aspects influencing her practice, and the field in general; examining key ideas, moments and questions from the history of conceptual installation art; exploring technical possibilities, techniques and the position of technology in conceptual art. Group sessions in our state-of-the-art classrooms will cover a wide range of topics, and individual sessions will develop your practice and projects.
