Alba Lorente’s work presents destruction as the creation of an image or piece of plastic art and as a methodology for understanding destructive impulses. Thus, she elaborates a code to obtain a new perception of beauty. What is considered weird and anomalous becomes an outbreak where the work is achieved by tearing and deforming the material with which one works. Following this line, she makes abstract drawings and sculptures, in which the memory of the process becomes the heart of the works, often accompanied by an audiovisual recording of its realization that underlines that idea of memory.
