As part of the Tilt Kids Festival, co-produced by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), The Invisible Dog Art Center will present Anima, an installation open from March 5 to April 14.
A luscious forest and archaeological dig open up a world of myth and magic in Anima. Kids are invited into the immersive and interactive installation to explore the connection between man, animals, and soul, inspired by Mayan culture.
Anima is a collaboration between visual artist Prune Nourry(Terracotta Daughters, 2014) and anthropologist Valentine Losseau with artists Etienne Saglio and Takao Shiraishi, scenographer Benjamin Gabrié, and Cie 14:20.
Prune Nourry is a New York-based French multidisciplinary artist who is currently in residence at the Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn. Trained as a sculptor, Nourry now also explores mediums such as photography, film, performance, and design. She draws her inspiration from themes surrounding bioethics, bringing attention to issues that arise from our fast-paced scientific discoveries, in particular, artificial procreation. Nourry was last seen in New York with her much-laudedTerracotta Daughters, part of FIAF’s Crossing the Line festival in 2014.
