About the artist
Graduated with honors and the AEEB prize.
Prune Nourry is a New York based, French multi-disciplinary artist who draws her inspiration from the themes that surround bioethics. Through the humorous medical world she recreates in her performances, artworks and exhibition design, Nourry brings attention to some of the preoccupying issues that arise from our fast growing scientific discoveries, in particular, artificial procreation.
Trained as a sculptor, Nourry now also explores a multitude of mediums such as photography and film, and attempts to transcend their 2 dimensionality through re-projection and creating sculptural pieces the audience can interact with. Offering an accessible, and participatory art experience to viewers is essential for Nourry.
