Luisa Pastor

Luisa Pastor Alicante,
My artistic work, against the organicity of the traditional work, recovers the poetic and political capacity of the fragment thanks to a critical questioning of the denotative force of language which, through a complex process of assemblage, demonstrates the internal limits of the game of representation, which is always insufficient. In this way, I construct fictional universes through humour and irony, inviting a much deeper reflection on the frames of reference that structure the material reality of the contemporary world.

To carry out my work, I use old account books as my main material, whose pages I work on with precision and meticulousness and whose titles do not leave anyone indifferent.
