Laure Prouvost is showing two works in the Biennale; one is the sequel to the other. Before Before, created in 2011, is a series of interleaving plywood boardswith little scenes hidden away in the corners. These take the form of videos, painted canvases, objects orsounds and texts telling the story of Kafka’s Metamorphosis. Prouvost is operating with an intentionally dubious translation of Kafka’s text, where the sensecharms the spectator into a narrative that is at firstentertaining but is then progressively undermined bythe juxtaposition of other implicit narratives. Graduallya Surrealists element seems to infiltrate the work and isbacked up by drawings from the storyboard of a film inthe process of being made. These are hung at variouspoints in the installation. Behind a hidden door, is After After, a completely dark room in which sculptures,paintings and objects flicker into sight with the flashesof a strobe light, giving rise, in the words of the artist, to “a different kind of 3D film”.
