Donna Huanca: Rua Minx Pop Up Shop
April 7 - 16, 2011
3227 1/2 Milam Street, Houston, TX 77006
Rua Minx Pop Up Shop is an on-site installation by Donna Huanca that serves as a stage for performance and a setting for Spring 2011 line of Rua Minx wearables, shoe sculptures, collages and photo. Huanca uses discarded materials; especially, clothing, shoes, and fabrics to create installations that are performative in nature, oscillating between the aesthetics of ritual arrangements and displays from ethnological museums. She is interested in clothing as shelter, transportable homes that nomads can hold on to, owning the potential to carry cultural and even genetic traces.
