b. Culiacan, Mexico. 1977. Lives and works in Culiacán.
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. In 2016 she was part of the residency program at Les Récollets, Paris and Headlands Center for the Arts, San Francisco. 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).
Her most recent exhibitions include: Cycles of Collapsing Progress , at the BeMA (Beirut Museum of Art) and XIV Bienal de Cuenca: Estructuras vivientes. El arte como experiencia plural at Fundación Municipal Bienal de Cuenca, Ecuador. Her work is part of collections such as: Colección Isabel and Agustín Coppel, México and Cisneros Fontanals Foundation, USA.
