Photo Gallery: Alejandra Laviada’s Destroyed Spaces

Alejandra Laviada, based in Mexico City, creates art that explores the spaces between photography, sculpture, found artifacts and inhabitable space. For each series of photographs, she sneaks into buildings that are in the process of being demolished and creates what she calls her “interventions” out of only the materials she finds in space she’s working in. The result is an at times colorful, at times bleak meditation on the remnants of society, the border between life and art, and the process of change.
