Opening Wednesday, February 12th at the New Museum, New York is “For Forgetting” a solo presentation by Laure Prouvost of a new, immersive installation.  “For Forgetting” is a new work that will include a semicircular collaged mural, a multichannel video installation, scattered sculptural elements, and a film, “How to Make Money Religiously” (2014). Centering on the problems as well as the possibilities of memory and forgetting, the piece addresses the arbitrary distinctions that can be ascribed to power and possession. “For Forgetting” expands Prouvost’s multilayered investigation of the slippages between systems of communication, and conjures diverse interpretations dependant on how one perceives or remembers the story.


Opening: February 12, 2014.


Laure Prouvost will be on view through April 13, 2014.
