With her latest installation, the Berlin- and New York–based artist gets meta by referencing the states of transformation and waiting intrinsic to the creation process. A womb-like membrane envelops the gallery, and within, Huanca has staged kaleidoscopic oil paintings, and chrome sculptures. Her sculptures, adorned with piercings and braids, reference the human body’s constant state of metamorphosis and Huanca’s own Bolivian heritage. Her work’s interdisciplinary nature shifts the focus from monetary value to the irreplicable experience of witnessing an artistic feat as it unfolds before one’s eyes.
