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.
Kunsthal Light #13
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.

Noor Mertens, curator of Prospects & Concepts* talks to Susanna Inglada.
*Every year during Art Rotterdam, the Mondriaan Fund organises Prospects and Concepts, an exhibition that helps increase the visibility of young visual artists.
Kunsthal Light creates opportunities for talented artists, putting the spotlight on modern muralists, urban and comic artists, conceptual art and installations. The artists are given the freedom to create a site-specific work in the display window along the building's front slope.
The Mondriaan Fund is a publicly financed fund for visual art and cultural heritage. It supports innovative projects and activities by visual artists, intermediaries (curators and critics), museums and other heritage organizations, art institutions, archives, galleries and commissioning parties.
