Swallow

Laure Prouvost

UK, 2013
12 minutes, Colour, Sound
Original format: HD video
Available formats: BluRay / HD Digital file

Inspired by the aesthetic and sensuous pleasures of Italy and referencing the genre of panoramic painting, Swallow shows fragments of footage, from birds to women bathing in waterfalls. Exploring language and translation, Prouvost plays on the historic idea of visiting the Mediterranean for inspiration.
