Lara Almarcegui werd geboren in 1972 in Zaragoza, Spanje. Ze woont en werkt momenteel in Rotterdam, Nederland. Het werk dat Lara Almarcegui al bijna twintig jaar aan het ontwikkelen is, bevraagt de grens tussen de vernieuwing en de ondergang van steden en probeert elementen van de stedelijke wereld te belichten die vaak in het oog springen. Aan de ene kant is de kunstenaar geïnteresseerd in verlaten ruimtes, structuren in het transformatieproces, waarbij ze de huidige staat van constructie, ontwikkeling, slijtage en degradatie van perifere gebieden bevraagt. Aan de andere kant probeert haar werk de ontelbare verbanden tussen architectuur en stedenbouw te ontcijferen door een discours uit te zetten over de verschillende elementen die de fysieke realiteit vormen van een constant veranderend stedelijk landschap.
