David Horvitz at Pululahua Craterc
Pululahua Crater for GALLERY/ NO GALLLERY, Quito
6 August – 17 September 2022

The exhibition takes place in the Pululahua crater near the center of the world, Quito, Ecuador. The name Pululahua means “water cloud” in the local Quichua language. The name is certainly apt, both for the fumaroles in this potentially active crater and for the humid rain clouds that gather most days. The Pululahua Geobotanical Reserve is one of two inhabited craters and the only cultivated crater in the world. The Pululahua community within the crater is home to a small group of inhabitants – about 42 families – who lead a peaceful life in an unusual place.

For this exhibition, David Horvitz presents Cada vez que me ducho siempre me pregunto cuándo el agua era una nube, a unique neon work which translated from Spanish means “Every time I take a shower, I always wonder when the water was a cloud.”
