Laure Prouvost’s dining table is drawn from her project Wantee, which she won the Turner Prize for in 2013. Wantee is a video in which Prouvost depicts a witty tribute to a fictional grandfather she manifested. This grandfather is loosely based on Kurt Schwitters, who nicknamed his partner Wantee. This video was displayed in an installation depicting an outdated house and skilfully weaves together fact, fiction, art history, personal memory and modern technology in order to create a completely new style of video work. As well as these confused delineations between fantasy and reality Prouvost's work also confuses states of seduction and repulsion, often presenting works that are both erotic and disgusting. Improving the Everyday (In Support of Grand Dad Visitor Centre) is no exception to this usual style in which she has created a tale out of ceramic tiles that depict familiar symbols, such as eyeballs and lips with abstract erotic phallic forms and painterly gestures in fleshy hues. In this work Prouvost also draws on another fictional character of a grandmother who is obsessed with turning her grandfather's art works into domestic functional objects, such as ceramic eyeballs into salt and pepper shakers or ceramic mounds suggestive of breasts into butter dishes. This table was part of exhibition Rough Music and was used as a dinner table for a dinner in which all art works for this exhibition were made to function as tables, glasses, jugs, mugs etc.
