Continues thru Feb 18:
”Listening To Silence”
Magnan Metz, 521 W26th St., NYC
The first U.S. solo exhibition for Cuban artist, Glenda León. León’s artwork spans from drawing to video art, including installation, objects and photographs. She is interested in the interstices between sound and silence, the visible and invisible, the ephemeral and eternal - visual poetry. The focal piece in the show, Objeto Mágico Encontrado #5 (Magical Found Object) presents a broken Baby Grand piano resting on the ground, missing one leg, with flowers growing out of its interior. The work exemplifies the artist’s optimism: the piano in ruins brings forth flowers, a metaphor of music’s power to continue to blossom in ones soul.
