Following on from her success at Musée Guimet in 2017, Prune Nourry is taking possession of the Galerie Templon space on Rue Grenier Saint Lazare for the first time with Catharsis. Opening on 7th September, the solo show is made up of a series of new sculptures interacting with extracts from her first feature-length documentary, Serendipity.

The Catharsis exhibition marks a turning point in the artist’s creative process. For over twelve years, Prune Nourry has been developing powerful and thoughtful multidisciplinary work, exploring the body by questioning gender and hybridisation. She has tended to keep her subject at a distance, remaining as objective as a researcher or anthropologist. Having recently overcome breast cancer, over the course of her treatment the artist felt she was becoming the subject of her own work, a sculpture in the hands of the doctors. With Catharsis, armed with her sculptor's tools, Prune Nourry reappropriates her body and her femininity, forging an intimate tie between her past explorations and her current life experience.
