About

Presented inside an earth-lined burrow, Laure Prouvost's new film invites us to take part in the story of the inhabitant of an underground lair, built into the Lighthouse space. A small tunnel leads to a screening space, the home of Eva's child (Eva is a previous character from one of Prouvost's films); he is the builder of this soily burrow. He tells us his fantastic story using conflicting dialogue, disturbing the meaning of spoken words, subtitles and images. In Burrow Me, Prouvost attempts to create a bond between narrator and viewer, developing a world where the audience's imagination is at work… Here a place is made where the believable becomes unbelievable and the unbelievable believable. Living and working in London, Prouvost weaves whimsical and intimate narratives that both mesmerise and disturb, blurring the boundary between reality and fantasy in ways that parody traditional narrative structures. Things never seem to quite match up in Prouvost's stories leaving the viewer with the task of trying to fix these somewhat messy and imperfect narratives that begin full of mystery and enchantment only to unravel and shatter any promise of a happy ending. Burrow Me has been newly commissioned by Lighthouse as part of our Artist Moving Image Commission Programme.
