Donna Huanca (b.1980) was born in Chicago and lives and works in Berlin. Her multimedia work engages with the human body and its visceral connection to space and identity. Huanca’s practice pushes audiences to question their understanding of biology, ecology and history through a decolonial lens.

Huanca has exhibited internationally. Solo exhibitions include: OBSIDIAN LADDER at Marciano Art Foundation (Los Angeles) in 2019; LENGUA LLORONA at Copenhagen Contemporary in 2019; CELL ECHO at the Yuz Museum (Shanghai), and PIEDRA QUEMADA at Belvedere Museum (Vienna) in 2018, and SCAR CYMBALS at Zabludowicz Collection (London) in 2016, amongst others. Huanca was a 2016 Hirshhorn Artist Honoree at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and a 2012 Fulbright Scholar in Mexico City. She received a 2009 DAAD Artist Grant, and a 2004 DeGolyer Grant from the Dallas Museum of Art.
