Prune Nourry presents her army of "Terracotta Daughters" at Le Centquatre
the "Terracotta Daughters", a monumental piece by French visual artist Prune Nourry, exhibited at "Le Centquatre" art space in Paris until June 1, 2014. In the continuation of her Holy Daughters project in India, Prune now reflects upon gender preference in China and infiltrates the local culture through the familiar symbol of the Terracotta Soldiers, by creating an army of 116 life-size Terracotta Daughters that will go on a world tour before returning to China in 2015, where they will be burried in a secret place that will be revealed in 2030.

PARIS.- Directly inspired by the famous Xi’an army of soldiers, up-and-coming French artist Prune Nourry presents her own army of "Terracotta Daughters". Following on from her "Holy Daughters" project in India, Prune Nourry is now interested in the demographic imbalance in China. She infiltrated local culture and was inspired by the famous, and very symbolic, Terracotta Soldiers to create an army of more than one hundred life-size "Terracotta Daughters". Created during her year in China, the whole of this monumental installation was exhibited at the Magda Danysz Gallery in Shanghai, and is now being exhibited in the main room of the CENTQUATRE-PARIS.

Born in 1985, Prune Nourry lives in the United States and is now on a residency at the Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn.

She is a multi-disciplinary artist who draws her inspiration from the themes that surround bioethics.

Through the humorous medical world she recreates in her performances, artworks and exhibition design, she brings attention to some of the preoccupying issues that arise from our fast growing scientific discoveries, in particular, artificial procreation.

The artist’s work is supported by a great deal of research and interviews with scientists. Her work takes an anthropological and participatory approach. She also gives artistic performances in which she stages her intentions and interacts with the public.

Prune Nourry takes part in numerous exhibitions and performances in Asia, the United States and Europe.

Terracotta Daughters were also exhibited at the Magda Danysz Gallery from 22 March to 10 May.
