In her work, artist Ju Mu deals with the cult of shamanism and took her inspiration for junior suite 816 from the rainforest and the god of rain. Together with the artists Krashkid and Isakov, she forms the collective known as Guapo Sapo.
Brought up in Hanover, with Peruvian-Chilean roots and a degree in fashion design, Ju Mu now lives and works in Cologne as a freelance artist. The cult of shamanism and the connections between humanity, the spirit world and nature are perennial features of her work and serve as inspiration for her masks, canvases and costumes. She uses whatever comes to hand in her works, creating a new, surreal world. Among other places, she has exhibited in Mexico, Palma de Mallorca, Berne, Hamburg, Leipzig, Cologne, Berlin, the Sprengel Museum in Hanover and – together with her collective Guapo Sapo – at the Millerntor Gallery.
