Susana Pilar: the body as work material

In almost all Susana Pilar’s works, the artist is present. Her work can be defined as eclectic, unpredictable and permeated with recurrent concerns. Pilar is interested in the state of affairs for women in the world and the different expression of gender discrimination. Through this interest she has also investigated violence against women in Cuba which inadvertently lead to an interest in certain phenomena like death and how they are handled by authoritative figures, professions and society in general. Each medium with which Susana Pilar works comes instinctively to her whether its video, performance, installation, sculpture, drawing and new media to name a few. The body is something particularly recurring and important in Pilar’s oeuvre. Mostly using her own, she considers the body to be a strong energetic and material charge with an expressive potential.
