Project description: Holy River

To mark the end of her three-year project focused on gender imbalance in India, Nourry commissioned a team of Kolkata potters to create a monumental reinterpretation of her Holy Daughter sculpture. Made from Ganges river clay, the 5-meter (16-foot) high statue was paraded through the streets of Kolkata on October 6th, 2011, as part of the annual Durga Puja festival. It was later immersed in the holy river along with countless other sculptures of Hindu deities.

Description of the artwork:

The Holy River lithograph crystallizes what Nourry calls “sculptor’s images” — images that rely on projection to blend photography with theme-corresponding elements such as milk, dirt or fabric.
