The dual solo exhibitions of two internationally renowned French contemporary artists Tatiana Trouvé (the winner of Prix Marcel Duchamp) and Laure Prouvost (the winner of Turner Prize) will open at Beijing Red Brick Art Museum on May 28th. It will be their first solo exhibitions in China. Tatiana Trouvé is well known for the large-scale spatial installations integrated with architecture and her paintings, while Laure Prouvost mainly works on video and immersive installations combined with video. The exhibitions are named for the titles of their works: “The Sparkle of Absence” is from Trouvé’s conceptual series, consisting of works that have never been materialized and that are only in the existence of titles; “Into All That Is Here” comes from the latest work of Prouvost’s most representative series “Granddad”.
The dual solo exhibitions are organized by the Red Brick Art Museum, supported by French Embassy in China, and curated by Tang Zehui with the help of the curatorial assistant Liang Xiao.
