Prune Nourry is interested in the fields of science and anthropology, and more particularly in bioethical issues related to gender selection and artificial human evolution, through a practice that combines sculpture, installation, performance and video. Her projects are international and based on meetings with specialists, psychoanalysts, geneticists, anthropologists and researchers.

In recent years, the artist has become known for her long-term projects, such as the one that saw her army of Terracotta Daughters, inspired by the terracotta warriors of Xi’an, travel the world between 2013 and 2015, from Shanghai to Paris via Zurich, New York and Mexico City, before being buried in China in a secret location until 2030.
