This installation runs 5pm-12am
Turner Prize-winning artist Laure Prouvost transforms a number of historic rooms of Admiralty Arch, bringing together new and existing work to take viewers on a conceptual journey.
Hidden behind a door is After After, a small, blacked-out room in which sculptures, paintings and objects placed throughout the space flicker into sight with the flashes of a strobe light, giving rise to what the artist calls "a different kind of 3D film." The viewer must take on the role of a detective, examining the objects as clues of evidence from the events in Prouvost’s earlier film The Wanderer, 2011, inspired by Kafka’s The Metamorphosis, 1915.
Prouvost often begins making art by writing stories that playfully re-write with histories of the spaces she inhabits—be that a city or a building—mixing reality and fiction with her own autobiography. Here she will expand upon the After After, working with performers, melancholy music, sign paintings, sculpture and light, to create a surreal experience.
Exhibition design by Diogo Passarinho. After After was initially funded by the Outset Contemporary Art Fund, Arts Council England and the 12th Lyon Biennial and loaned from FRAC Bourgogne.
