Special Feature: Donna Huanca

Taehyeon Kwon, Art in Culture, April 1, 2023

Artist Donna Huanca is renowned for her multidisciplinary approach, as her art effortlessly blends painting, sculpture, performance, sound, and scent. As a “total artist,” she captivates the international art scene with her monumental scale, historical contextualization, and provocative body language. Huanca recently held her first solo exhibition in Korea, titled BLISS POOL, where she showcased over 20 new works, featuring paintings, sculptures, and performances set against the backdrop of a large, curved structure. To heighten the audience’s synesthetic experience, she wove personally sampled sounds and the distinctive scents of Palo Santo wood and burnt hair into her exhibition.
