Glenda Leon, ‘Dirigir las nubes ’, 2008-2017, Galeria Senda

Text of the video: Según un reconocido científico de física cuántica, está comprobado que, habiendo logrado el grado de concentración y voluntad necesarios cualquier individuo puede llegar a dirigir las nubes. El evento ha ocurrido en distintos lugares del planeta pero ha sido pocas veces avizorado, ya que hoy día casi nadie
mira con detenimiento al cielo.
No obstante, muchas personas han identificado formas bastante precisas en las nubes, pero permanecen ignorando su peculiar procedencia.

About Glenda Leon

Trained in classical ballet, Cuban conceptual artist Glenda Leon creates video, installation, public interventions, and photography that examine the relationship between the man-made and the natural, often highlighting the folly of human timekeeping. As Leon has said, “it takes a whole lifetime to create an artwork.” Her work Wasted Time consists of a mountain of sand that has engulfed an hourglass, and in the summer of 2004, the artist glued fake green leaves to tree branches in a public park for her work Esperanza (Out of Season). When the seasons changed, the surrounding leaves turned brown and fell to the ground, only then revealing their artificial counterparts.

Cuban, b. 1976, Havana, Cuba, based in Havana and Madrid
