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.
