NF/ NIEVES FERNÁNDEZ presents the exhibition “Chicxulub, studies in a landscape”, by Fritzia Irízar. The artist investigates the Chicxulub crater in Yucatán, to establish a link between the impact of a meteorite 66 million years ago with the SARS Cov 2 pandemic.

Analyzing history and disappearance of the weakest species, Fritzia Irízar reflects on the use of power and the specific circumstances in which it dictates on the collective natural environment based on economic benefit, generating situations in which ethics and respect for community life loses all its value.

Fritzia Irizar has exhibited in several international institutions such as the MUAC, Museo Ex Teresa Arte Actual, Sala Siqueiros and Museo Rufino Tamayo in Mexico City, the Orange County Museum of Art in Santa Ana, CA2M (Centro de Arte 2 de Mayo) in Madrid, Headlands Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CIFO Fundación Fontanals Cisneros in Miami, Giorgio Cini Foundation in Venice, Seattle Art Museum in Seattle, Fundación Banco Santander in Madrid, Beirut Museum of Art (BeMA) in Beirut and the Rashid Karami International Fair in Tripoli. She has also participated in different biennials: the 9th and 10th Mercosur Biennial in Porto Alegre, the 12th FEMSA Biennial in Monterrey and the 14th Cuenca Biennial. 
Her work can be found in collections such as JUMEX, Mexico; Isabel y Agustín Coppel Collection, Mexico; Servais Collection, Belgium; Colección Olor Visual, Spain; Braddock Collection, USA; Proyecto Bachué, Colombia; CIFO Collection, USA; Fondazione Benetton, Italy; and CA2M, Spain.
