The work of Glenda León begins with drawing and extends to objects, sound, performance, and ultimately video art. As a multimedia artist, her practice incorporates a repertoire of techniques and materials that draw from experimentation and her multidisciplinary background. León challenges our perception through connections that make visible and simultaneously 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 emerges from the fusion of her empirical vocation and contemporary mystical research, positioning her art between rationalism - in its broadest meaning - and spirituality. Glenda León emphasizes the act of listening as if it were a necessary step to continue growing in our evolutionary process. Dance, choreography, and music have deepened her understanding of a "whole" where mind, body, space, sound, and silence coexist. Therefore, her works present a shift in focus on reality and time, speaking to us about mystical experiences through sensory elements and presenting the disintegration of the self through imagery.
"Like magic, art is an act of transformation, which sometimes translates into a simple coincidence." - Glenda León
