Donna Huanca “Echo Implant” Exhibition at Joe Sheftel, New York

Donna Huanca‘s first solo exhibition “Echo Implant” fea­tur­es new paint­ings and sculp­tures which 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. Per­for­mances will be held on Sundays Feb­ru­ary 15, March 1, and March 8 from 3-6pm at Joe Sheftel, 24 Orchard Street, New York. Photo Elise Gallant
