Christa Donner often incorporates public projects and collaborations around personal narratives of bodily experience to make art. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Colombia, Cyprus, Sweden, Finland, and throughout the United States. Now based in Chicago, in 2013 she founded 'Cultural ReProducers', an online resource and community-based project for and about active cultural workers raising kids.
Ectopic, Extrasensory and Pregnancy Test are paper art collages that turn the idea of reproduction literally upside down. The possibility of not being physically able to reproduce are considered in 'Ectopic' and 'Extrasensory', while 'Pregnancy Test' poses the more emotional/spiritual question of is it possible to have children and maintain a strong artistic identity? Often site specific, these works are difficult to reproduce for our viewing.
