Fritzia Irízar

Born in Mexico City, 1977 and lives in Culiacán, Mexico

Fritzia Irízar’s work has questioned the value of money and its purchasing power, she plays with the economic and symbolic revaluation of objects as they move from their common field to art. Her work recognizes that history and science are almost fictions, built on small surfaces of knowledge and are subject to the decision of a few individuals. However, they are fictions that we want to hold: as acts of faith, of belonging, of will or certainty.
Fritzia obtained the 2011 Bancomer-MACG scholarship and a commissioned work for Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO) during that same year, the residency program AIR-KREMS in Austria in 2013 and during 2016 will be part of the residency program at Les Récollets, Paris; Headlands Center for the Arts, San Francisco and Institute for Provocation, Beijing. She participated in the Mercosul Biennial in Porto Alegre in 2013 (curated by Sofía Hernández Chong), had a solo exhibition at the Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros (2014) and participated in the 2015 Mercosul Biennial (curated by Gaudencio Fidelis).
