Mix-media/installation/video/ interventions

Based in the UK Lorena Carbajal is interested in investigating the notion of displacement, to examine the effects of bringing two cultures sometimes uncomfortably close together - where the uncertainty of incompatible codes, both linguistic and cultural emerges. “Lost in translation” is an aspect of her work, how these ideas can be misinterpreted. She often collaborates with artists and non-artists who also live abroad to gather source materials and thoughts for the development of her work.  Carbajal believes that her investigations will be enriched dramatically through the sharing of different points of view on the same subject.
