Her last exhibition in Berlin, Horizons, took over Import Projects with one of the best openings of the year, and she returns to the city with another feat of the imagination. In *Echoes*, we are told, the walls of DUVE are streaked with a yellow pigment as part of Humeau’s ‘Black Mamba’ installation. The pigment, sourced in Florida, contains 2 grams of fatally poisonous venom.
In front of the deadly mural are Humeau’s signature varnished white polystyrene sculptures. They too will participate in the toxic exchange of Humeau’s imagining: they will spend the next six weeks, “calmly generating potions and toxins – agonists and antagonists – as in the case of ‘Wadjet (King Cobra)’, which is engineered to produce its own antidote [and] ‘Sobek (Muhammad Ali)’ [which] produces resilient alligator blood on an industrial scale”.
