Glenda León

In her practice as a multimedia artist, Glenda León incorporates a repertoire of techniques and materials that are nourished by experimentation and her multidisciplinary formation. León challenges the perception of the recipient of her work through links that make visible -and at the same time contradict- natural laws. She is interested in the interstices between the visible and the invisible, between sound and silence, between the ephemeral and the eternal.

Her body of work arises from the fusion between her empirical vocation and a contemporary mystical investigation, which places her work between rationalism -in its broadest meaning- and spirituality.

León emphasizes the act of listening as if it were a necessary step to continue growing in the evolutionary process. Dance, choreography and music deepen her understanding of a “whole” inhabited by mind, body, space, sound and silence. Hence, her works present a change of focus on reality and time, they speak of mystical experiences through sensory elements and they present the disintegration of the self through the image.

“Like magic, art is an act of transformation, which sometimes translates into a simple coincidence,” states León.
