Nicolas Provost is a filmmaker and visual artist living and working in Brussels, Belgium. He studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Gent, Belgium and spent 10 years in Oslo, Norway where he first worked as an illustrator, graphic designer and art director. In the late 1990s he started making video works, which have been screened worldwide and have received awards at many international film festivals. Provost?s work is a reflection on the grammar of cinema, and the relation between visual art and the cinematic experience. Duality plays an important role; his video works often balance between the grotesque and the moving, beauty and cruelty, the emotional and the intellectual. Through the manipulation of time, codes and formal elements, Provost analyses cinematographic and narrative language; new stories are told by shifting and deconstructing existing footage. Sound is also an important element, used for rhythmic support or as an emotional guideline.
