HOLY, CARTE BLANCHE TO PRUNE NOURRY 
For its fourth Carte Blanche assigned to a contemporary artist, the MNAAG chose to go beyond the close environment of the Rotunda (4th floor) and show the visual artist Prune Nourry’s sculptures in a poetic dialogue with the collections. Fifteen historic pieces of the museum’s permanent collection share in it. Presented in a tour outlined in the folder, Prune Nourry’s works offer visual analogies and semantic correspondences, inviting the visitor to participate throughout the museum in an authentic reflection on the future of mankind. Arisen from a triptych of experiences in Asia, her creations – performances, sculptures, installations – illustrate ten years of the artist’s work. The tour culminates under the gaze of a monumental creation, a fragmented Buddha, in ruins, that takes over every floor of the museum.

CONTEMPORARY ARCHEOLOGY, Solo Show

Posted on January 09, 2017

From January 12 to March 4, 2017

OPENING
Thursday January 12 - 5:30pm to 8:30pm

Galerie Templon
13 A rue Veydt - Veydtstraat
1060 Brussels

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.

Avec sa nouvelle exposition "Contemporary Archeology", Prune Nourry recrée l'expérience d'un site archéologique contemporain. Cette proposition inédite se place dans la droite ligne de son projet au long cours, les Terracotta Daughters.
Les 108 sculptures, hommage aux petites filles "jamais nées", victimes de la sélection des genres, ont été enterrées par l’artiste en 2015 dans un site secret de la Chine continentale. Elles resteront sous terre jusqu’en 2030, année où les conséquences de la politique de l’enfant unique en Chine atteindront leur paroxysme – marquant le plus grand déséquilibre jamais atteint entre les populations des deux sexes.
Le visiteur est invité à un parcours immersif dans un espace transformé par la terre, le bois, et autres matériaux. Il y rencontre des sculptures en terre cuite, en bronze, des images sculptées, ainsi que les étapes éphémères de la création devenues des œuvres à part entière. Une installation intitulée “ L’Atelier" invite les spectateurs à être témoin des processus de création qui se déroulent dans les coulisses de l’atelier de l’artiste.
