Catherine Lorent works with an expanded Baroque concept of art that exposes the contradictions of the modern Western way of life and questions dialectical thought.

Her musical project Gran Horno, in which she acts simultaneously as a visual artist and a multi-instrumentalist, epitomizes this multidisciplinary approach, which at first sight appears to pander to the current trend towards “event exhibitions.
