Terracotta daughters is a project which really touched me!
Prune Nourry, the artist behind the project did an amazing project and it's more than worth seeing it
june 13th - july 11 - Schiffbauplatz 5 - 8005 Zürich - Switzerland
It's an incredible realization based on the very well known chinese Terracotta Warriors from Xi'an. She replaced the male figure with 8 orphan girls, representing the problem about male child and gender selection in China and India.
As my sister comes from India (she was adopted right after her birth), I feel really closed to this culture and problematic. The exhibition is a fabulous work, full of emotion, impressive technique and extremely well presented.
But the most impressive part of the exhibition is that Prune created 108 statues based on 8 faces, 8 upper bodies and 8 legs, crossing them together.
And the Clou is that she'll bury them all in China for 20 years as a symbol.
Take half an hour or more and go check her work, her video and get inspired.
I wish you a great weekend and thank you for stopping by.
