Abstract (English)

"Laure Prouvost’s The Wanderer is a multifaceted film and installation project based on Rory Macbeth’s English translation of Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis, a text completed despite Macbeth’s inability to speak the German language. Expanding on Macbeth’s layered ideas of translation and misinterpretation Prouvost transposes the text into a sprawling, seven-part feature film and series of installation works.

For her exhibition with Gallery TPW, Prouvost has recreated one of the film’s primary settings, a neighbourhood hair salon, which functions as an immersive reflection on the film’s artifice and staging devices. Embedded within the installation are monitors which screen several chapters from The Wanderer." -- Publisher's website.
