Glenda León (La Havana, 1976) is a visual artist based in La Havana and Madrid. Her work expands from drawing to video art, including installation, objects, and photography. She is interested in revealing antagonisms, in interstices between visible and invisible, between sound and silence, between ephemeral and eternal. Her work encourages the viewer to approach the object from a poetical perspective. This way, she reveals the metaphoric part of everyday life objects. 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.
