Re-insertion into a unkown landscape. Collaboration with Donna Huanca supported by
When exploring the world and embracing new experiences, the point is always to re-affirm one's own reality and chosen space in the present moment.
This work provides the end of the romanticism with genetic memory that has always been an important element of Huanca’s oeuvre.
The images of this series depict Huanca being inserted by Minten in the places of her genetic past, often referring to historic places and past cultures but always with an almost decomposing feeling related to the new environment.
We see Huanca desperately trying become part of the landscape, sometimes even camouflaging into the background by becoming an object or shape,-nothing that has a definite form yet.
These works comment on the feeling of dis-location, which are a result of globalization and the migration of culture –which often results in a desperate intent to hold on to former cultures .
Medium: limited series of Lambda prints mounted on Dibond
