Sometimes I like to torture myself with drooling over worthwhile shows in places where I am not, like the new solo presentation of multi-disciplinary artist DONNA HUANCA that opened a few days ago at Joe Sheftel location in New York.

Entitled Echo Implant, the exhibition seems to be an immersive installation featuring new paint­ings and sculp­tures that will be acti­vated by live models during performances. Most of the time, the models – during these activations – are embedded in the installation as live statues or totems, camouflaged and infused into the sculptural setting as a form of tableau vivant. The piece presented above is called Trimester (2015) and is part of the exhibition.

Born in Chicago, HUANCA received a BFA in Paint­ing from the Uni­ver­sity of Hous­ton and stud­ied at Städelschule, Frank­furt, Ger­many. In 2012, she was awarded a Ful­bright Schol­ar­ship to live and work in Mex­ico City.

DONNA HUANCA: Echo Implant is on view at Joe Sheftel Gallery in New York till March 8, 2015. Please note also the performance schedule:

  • Sun­day, Feb­ru­ary 15, 3-6pm
  • Sun­day, March 1, 3-6pm
