Lives and works in La Habana and Madrid.
Glenda Leon’s work includes various techniques such as drawings, video art, installations, sculpture and photography. Glenda León encourages the viewer to approach the object from a poetical perspective. This way, she reveals the metaphoric part of everyday life objects and is interested in revealing antagonisms like silence or sound, visibility or invisibility; public or private; and ephemeral or eternal. The constancy of the absence in all superfluous elements and the fusion of natural and artificial elements demonstrate the author’s taste for the persistence of processes. Her works transition within the intimate and public sphere, which manifests her ability of create new meanings to these objects through a process of manipulation, contextualization, and object association.
