The Procreative Dinner is an ephemeral work between art, science and gastronomy.
Prune Nourry associates her art to a chef étoilé and a specialised scientist to think about the idea of a child «à la carte», and how the techniques of assisted procreation lead us to an artificial evolution of the human being through selection.
The artist designed a meal around a «clinical process» – which moved through all stages of child conception, from in-vitro fertilization to choosing the sex of the child.
During this dinner, spectator becomes an integral part of the happening. He is ‘procreative’ because he creates, from cocktail to dessert and following step by step an assisted conception, his “perfect child”.
