Past: Laure Prouvost

You're always entering a tunnel with Prouvost. Always ending with an argument on the exact definition of mis-en-scene. ... Prouvost's is a sort of dental office maximalism.

"Prouvost treats everything and me as an infant, so radically in awe of all equally, dust, shit, flowers babies, nipples, in resin or celluloid cast together. Like advertisements working on the desire for you to return to the infantile placental state, into some affective hypnosis, impressionable like goo."
