Donna Huanca’s first solo ex­hi­bi­tion

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Work­ing with live per­for­mance, paint­ing, sculp­ture and tex­tiles, Donna Huanca, a Ber­lin-based, Bo­li­vian Amer­i­can artist will ex­tend her vis­ual lan­guage through a new se­ries of works in­clud­ing paint­ings, sculp­ture, video and per­for­mance, build­ing a ter­rain which echoes it­self. Ma­te­ri­als such as turmeric, sand, and clay, which de­rive from the earth, also used in heal­ing, play an im­por­tant role in her prac­tice. Skin paint­ings, frag­ments of paint, or skin-like ma­te­ri­als on the sculp­tures main­tain a self-sus­tain­ing cy­cle. As the artist pointed out, “It’s a con­tin­u­ous whirl like a snake eat­ing its own tail.” Be­gin­ning as a mu­si­cian be­fore cre­at­ing paint­ings, Huanca is not only in­ter­ested in the ma­te­ri­al­ity, but also sound. The ex­hi­bi­tion will be com­pletely silent, and to her, “Si­lence is also a sound. Si­lence is not ac­tual si­lence.” The artist chose the re­cur­ring word “echo” where she used when think­ing or speak­ing about the works, in­di­cat­ing “cer­tain ap­proaches or el­e­ments are dis­trib­uted from the same core then re­ver­ber­ate a re­sem­blance or sim­i­lar­ity to one an­other, ver­bal­iz­ing the dy­nam­ics of the works.” This ad was based on the in­tro­duc­tion posted on the web­site of the Yuz Mu­seum.
