    About the artist

    Almudena Lobera's work delves deeply into the notion that the image is not always visible or accesible in nature; she explores its different states as part of the experience of perception within an artistic context as she reflects on different “ways of seeing”. The unseen, the invisible, the unknown, mental processes, the virtual, the inaccessible are all present; everything that lacks visuality and materiality takes shape in her recent works. She gives expression to her ideas using different materials: installations, video-installations, drawings, photographs, objects or mixed techniques. Space and action are also important for the artist, who considers the work-viewer experience key.

    She has a degree in Arts –BA Fine Art– and a Postgraduate degree, MA in Arts, Creation and Research from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. She studied two years at Universität der Künste Berlin, where she was awarded an Erasmus grant, and did artistic residences at the UCL Slade School of Fine Art, London, UK (2010) and the FAAP São Paulo, Brazil (2011). 

    She has received several awards such as: Generation 2012 Award from Caja Madrid; Circuits 2011 from the Autonomous Region of Madrid; the INJUVE Young People's Projects and Creations Award 2011, the Accésit of the ABC Art Award 2011, the FIBArt 2011 grant, the Del Plano al Cubo Award CCE_México, and the Aid for Production in Visual Arts 2012 Com. Madrid.

    Her work has been shown in collective exhibitions in Spain, Germany, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Italy, Brazil, Chile and Argentina. Between 2010 and 2012, she had five individual exhibitions: Desvelatorio in Brita Prinz (Madrid), Reflection-Reflexion at the UCL Slade School of Fine Art (London), Manual of the mental image in Rafael Pérez Hernando gallery (Madrid), Somewhere Between in Eva Ruiz gallery (Madrid) and Portadores in Diablo Rosso gallery (Panamá).

    She belongs to the network of Intransit graduate artists and the Archivo de Creadores belonging to Matadero in Madrid. She has also collaborated with the Museo Reina Sofía, where she held a workshop in the summer of 2011 entitled Reinventing Space.
