Nicolas Provost: Selected Works

Wed Sep 16 2009 – Sun Feb 28 2010

Seattle Art Museum

Forum Gallery

The Seattle Art Museum is the first U.S. museum to survey the work of Belgian filmmaker Nicolas Provost. This installation comprises five video works, showing the range of approaches Provost has brought to his filmmaking since 2003. Provost has what could be seen as a 21st-century "do-it-yourself" approach to making video, often appropriating found footage and editing it extensively with commercial editing software to make radically new and exciting imagery. While the end product is often grandiose, sweeping and emotionally charged, there is a low-budget ethos behind the work that gives hope to aspiring filmmakers.

—Michael Darling, Jon & Mary Shirley Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art
