Lagata’s work process is based on searching, combining and remixing poor materials, found objects and wastes, signs that encourage him to experience new interpretive ways of what surrounds us. He is interested in the image and its imbrication with other media such as sculpture, installations, visual media and music, as well as the creation of scenographies, atmospheres or environments.
