  • Terracotta Daughters- Prune Nourry

  • Sep 10, 2014 at 3:00pm to Oct 4, 2014 at 5:00pm
  • Location: 104 Washington Street
  • Description:

    An army of young girls assembles in the first U.S. showing of Terracotta Daughters, a monumental exhibition of 108 life-sized and individually crafted clay sculptures that recall China’s famous Terracotta Warriors. Created by New York-based French artist Prune Nourry with expert craftsmen in Xi’an, this installation is a powerful investigation of the impact of gender selection in Asia and beyond.

    Prune Nourry (b. 1985) 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 Crossing the Line 2011 with The Spermbar; prior to its US debut, Nourry showed Terracotta Daughters in Shanghai, Paris and Zurich.

    With a soaring tenor that brims with passion and nuance, singer-songwriter Youssou N’Dour is a global music icon.  An early emissary of the mbalax style—a blend of bubbling Senegalese griot percussion, Wolof lyrics, and Afro-Cuban influences—he has gone on to become a tireless cultural ambassador and one of the most revered figures on the world stage. Last at BAM in 2009, N’Dour returns for a rare stateside appearance, performing with his band, the Super Étoile, for two nights only.
