The Beauty of Donna Huanca’s Body Art is More Than Skin Deep

Charlotte Jansen, Artsy, September 16, 2016

Amid the cosmopolitan chaos of London this fall, the New York artist is creating space for meditative contemplation. As Frieze Week sets in, the Zabludowicz Collection in London will be taken over by Huanca’s army of nearly-nude, pastel-painted models, who will be enshrined in a three-floor Perspex structure the artist has built. As they press and rub their bodies against the transparent walls, they’ll create a painting, which will evolve over the course of the exhibition with the gradual build up of their imprints.
