Spotlight Screenings: Taking Care (Love Letter to Fellow Art Work) by Laure Prouvost
April 20, 2020 - April 27, 2020
This week’s Spotlight Screening from Lisson Gallery features a new, previously unseen work by Laure Prouvost. Entitled Taking Care (Love Letter to Fellow Art Work), her intent was to play this work on a monitor, positioned directly in front of another sculpture or work of art that the artist would then remotely caress, fondle and whisper sweet nothings towards. However, without a physical gallery to place this film, the piece becomes an online lament for the disappearance of the direct experience of art objects in space, as well as for the human contact we all crave in isolation.
