With ‘Contemporary Archeology’ presented at Daniel Templon Gallery in Brussels, Prune Nourry recreates the experience of a contemporary archeological site. This new proposition relates directly to her long-term project Terracotta Daughters.
The 108 sculptures, homages to young girls ‘never born’, or victims of gender selection, were buried in 2015 at a secret site in mainland China by the artist. They will remain buried until 2030, the year when the consequences of China’s one-child policy will peak, marking the moment when the country experiences the greatest gender imbalance ever seen.
Visitors are taken on an immersive journey inside a space transformed using earth, wood, and a variety of materials. Inside they encounter bronze and terracotta sculptures, photographs, videos, as well as the ephemeral creative stages which have become works of art in themselves. L’Atelier, a special installation, invites the viewers to witness the processes that go on behind the scenes at Prune Nourry’s studio.
