YGAIII: Susanna Inglada

YGA III promo Susanna Inglada

Susanna Inglada

Susanna Inglada is an alumna of the Frank Mohr Institute (2013) and takes inspiration from Spanish and Catalan political history, which she sees mainly in terms of violence and power struggles. She collects images from the Internet and magazines and turns them into large black-and-white drawings. By positioning her drawings freely throughout a space, she creates a hybrid between a theatrical production and a diorama, in which viewers feel as if they are witnessing an enigmatic psychological battle.

During a residency in Rome last year, Inglada was affected by the breathtaking wealth of art through the ages, even as it made her more aware of the “battle of the sexes” and how gender inequality has been expressed over and over in various ways in art history. In her new work, which is also inspired by her own Spanish family history and current events in Spain, she aims to make viewers see and feel this inequality in a penetrating way.


The YGA programme is a special joint project of NP3 and the Groninger Museum designed to supplement the selected artists’ existing creative practice. By providing vital professional support, NP3 and the Groninger Museum offer the participating artists a unique opportunity to take the next big step in their careers, to refine and deepen their work and to lift it to the next level. An important element of the programme is each artist’s development of a proposal for an exhibition of new work for the Groninger Museum. One of the three artists will be selected to realise their exhibition on the basis of their progress in the YGA programme as well as their proposal.
