Luis Lecea Romera manipulates material and aural spaces to render affect, decay and oblivion. His practice engages with aliveness, deadness, or humanness as unstable categories through site-relational pieces. He is interested in retracing and retexturing micro and necropolitical consequences of landscapes and architectures, utilising sound as a binding material in installations, compositions and performances.
