b. Madrid,
based in Amsterdam













Luis Lecea Romera is an artist, architect and sound performer based in Amsterdam. He manipulates material, digital and aural scenographies as a mode to render affect, decay and oblivion. Driven by speculation and embodied enquires, his work stems from retracing and retexturing micro and necropolitical consequences of landscapes and architectures.
