Generous and full of humour, the work of Laure Prouvost examines the relationships between language, image and perception, placing the visitors in situations of doubt and incomprehension, but also a wonder that is both intellectual and sensorial. These situations become immersive installations, inviting escapism, in a dialogue between films, sculptures, paintings, tapestries, performances. Her exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo, "Ring, Sing and Drink for Trespassing", at the heart of this monograph, operates as an ode to diagonal lines, the transcending of limits and the joy of slipping over a fence to discover a wasteland or, a now-abandoned garden.
