For Kunsthal Light #13, the museum’s display window was taken over by theatrical, dark characters created by artist Susanna Inglada (Spain, 1983). She draw these figures in the space provided using charcoal and paint.
Inglada likes to work without a fixed frame or canvas. This allows her the freedom to construct lively scenes, her creations serving as the players and props in a theatrical performance. Inspired by the culture and politics of her homeland Spain, Inglada creates her own world using symbols of violence and power, with the figures appearing to respond to each other.
In short fragments she illustrates how people can play various roles in society, whether wittingly or not. She gives the viewers every freedom to interpret the scenes as they see fit or to invent their own stories.
