Luxembourg souterrain

Lara Almarcegui - Luxembourg souterrain
Luxembourg underground: this artist's book offers a vertical journey through the city's subsoil structure.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition “Le gypse” at Casino Luxembourg from March 23 to September 4, 2016.
Lara Almarcegui (born 1972 in Zaragoza, Spain) has built up an artistic practice around exploring the material aspects of land and urban space. She has worked in different cities, identifying abandoned, unused, or forgotten sites and examining the contemporary transformation processes brought about by social, political, and economic change. At a time of widespread urban renewal in Europe, Almarcegui has created guides to wastelands in the cities she has worked in, sometimes even instigating their legal protection. Almarcegui has also turned her attention to construction sites, in particular the composite materials used in the construction of new buildings and the cyclical relationship between land and architecture.
