For the second Artist’s Film Premieres, Art Brussels and the Beursschouwburg are inviting the winner of The Turner Prize 2013. Laure Prouvost (1978), who is French and lives in London, won this prize for Wantee, a video installation inspired by a cup of tea. Do you want tea?

NRC Handelsblad recently wrote the following about the video artist: "She made her video Wantee at the beginning of this year for the exhibition Schwitters in Britain for Tate Britain. At first sight the film appears to be a personal work about her grandparents, but fiction and reality swiftly become entwined. Prouvost’s work is smart, playful, tactile, layered and by far the most original contribution to the exhibition in Derry. Although Prouvost is the youngest and least known participant in this edition of the Turner Prize her work would thoroughly merit the principal prize.”

The Turner Prize is the most prestigious British award for contemporary art. Practically all of the great British artists have won the prize at some point, including Richard Long, Rachel Whiteread, Gilbert & George, Anish Kapoor, Chris Ofili, Steve McQueen and Mark Wallinger.

In addition to Wantee we’ll be showing a few other short films by Laure Prouvost.

After the screening, there will be an after talk with the film maker and Alan Quireyns (Artistic Director AIR Antwerp).
