After After the End

Laure Prouvost
United Kingdom 2014 / 9’

Laure Prouvost (an award winner for Wantee at the 14th T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival) made her latest film from material left over from her earlier film The Wanderer. She then added complementary footage filmed during the Biennale in Lyon. In After After the End, in short, dynamic scenes using strobe lights, she shows objects separated from themselves. Items arranged throughout a space act as hints left behind by the artist that help the viewer decipher the meaning of the work.
