Yuz Museum is pleased to present Donna Huanca’s first solo exhibition in mainland China, “Cell Echo,” from March 24th to June 3rd, 2018 at Yuz Project Space of Art. Working with live performance, painting, sculpture and textiles, the 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.

Skin, body, its presence and absence in space lays at the core of Huanca’s works. Materials such as turmeric, sand, and clay, which derive from the earth, also used in healing, play an important role in her practice. The 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.”
