Lara Almarcegui’s works examine processes of urban transformation that derive from a cycle of permanent destruction and (re-)construction. She explores the site-specific histories of derelict lots, documenting these sites in photographs, site maps, and writings she publishes in information brochures, her Guides.

She also draws up surveys of all construction materials, including the respective quantities, that went into buildings, and presents her findings in wall texts and other formats. Based on these calculations, the artist creates sculptural landscapes by stacking up previously unused construction supplies or building piles of recycled materials.

For the Secession, Lara Almarcegui performs an analysis of the architectonic structure of its Art Nouveau home. In addition, she will publish a new Guide about the urban development area surrounding Vienna’s Nordbahnhof railway station.
Lara Almarcegui (b. 1972 in Zaragoza) lives and works in Rotterdam.

Opening hours: Tue–Sun 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
Guided tours: Saturday 3 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m.
