“In her ‘Abstractions Quotidiennes’ series, bland visuals of peripheral urban spaces give way to colour-saturated monochrome screens that have the same transfixing power as James Turrell’s light projections, but also act as a backcloth, a blank slate, for the abstract visions we might conjure from Prouvost’s eccentric, uncomfortably emotive cameos of the quotidian. Here things are slimy, things drip and slither, they are unbearably hot or chillingly cold, there are threats of violence in a remorseless procession of the repulsive and the degraded, of which H.P. Lovecraft would be justly proud.” – Roy Exley
