At the 55th Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, Spain is represented by Lara Almarcegui, an artist who’s work often deals with urban wastelands and modern ruins. For the Spanish Pavilion, she conceived an installation that refers to the architecture and construction of the building that was constructed by Javier de Luque in 1922.
