Laure Prouvost is a French multimedia artist (Lille, 1978) living and working in Antwerp. In her work, she examines the relationship between the contemporary viewer and the past using modern technology. She studied at Central Saint Martins in London between 1999 and 2002, and then continued her studies at Goldsmiths College. During her early years in London, she worked as an assistant to John Latham, a conceptual artist known for his studies on the relationship between art and science. Prouvost, whose art combines collages, installations and experimental film, considers Latham as her ‘conceptual godfather’.
