For ECHO IMPLANT, Donna Huanca creates an immersive installation featuring new paintings and sculptures that will be activated by scheduled performances in the exhibition space.
Donna Huanca’s installations fuse tactile materials, such as clothing and ephemera to create performative architectural collages. Working primarily with deconstructed clothing, dipped in paint and solidified, her sculptural gestures pause a once-fluid life of the garment. During Huanca’s durational performances the works interact with the vulnerability of live models, camouflaged and infused into the sculpture, giving life to otherwise static artworks.
