Prune Nourry: Serendipity

In stock (1000 items available)
This is the first retrospective on French-born, New York–based artist Prune Nourry (born 1985), who uses sculpture, installation, performance and video, while also collaborating with researchers and scientists, to address bioethical issues such as gender selection, artificial procreation and genetic engineering. Her critically acclaimed triptych on gender selection started in India with the projects Holy Daughters (2009) and Holy River (2011). The third part, Terracotta Daughters, a life-size army Prune made in Xi'an, China, travelled the world in 2014 before being buried in 2015 as a contemporary archaeological site. Published to coincide her exhibition at the Musee national des arts asiatiques in Paris, this volume surveys ten years of work, with essays by the psychoanalyst François Ansermet, Sophie Makariou, director of the Musée national des arts asiatiques Guimet, the artist Orlan, Tatyana Franck, director of the Musee de l’Elysee, the artist Clifford Ross and the Indian sociologist Ravinder Kaur.
