Roto [Broken], in its own way, is a meditation and a staging of time passage. The artist herself approaches the central concept of “irreversibility” to describe her work. Each piece, each operation contained in her action is related to a certain time dimension: Belén loses the sense of time by going into a ritual trance of automatic repetitions; the objects on which she works bear the brunt of time which has caused their obsolescence; whatever is broken is no longer what it was in the past; the action itself can only be developed over time and the result is the triumph of an irreversible entropy.”
