Schipbreukeling – Mathieu Charles

Laure Prouvost

In Melting into one another ho hot chaud it heating dip, sonsbeek underground exhibition space is completely transformed. Step by step, entering the basement at De Groen the space gradually fills with curtains, squid ink and tentacular elements that give life to an immersive installation at the crossroads between fiction and reality. Digging into her surrealistic scenario, Laure Prouvost continues her journey in sonsbeek, began in the Venice Biennale, into the subconscious of all of us through the folds of our ecosystem. Accompanied by the constant flow of the water and by the repetitions of tents and tentacles, step by step we metaphorically immerse ourselves in a liquid reality to investigate the origin of our planet and of ourselves. A film, projected directly on the liquid floor, is the central element around which the complex installation is structured. Like the head of the octopus the film gives life to all the tentacles spread across the space thus becoming sensory extensions of it.

The installation was originally commissioned by Kunsthalle Lissabon in 2020.
