INFLICTO[edit | edit source]

A series of 15 sculptures and photographs, all constructed by Irene Zundel. The artist's intent here is to move the observer's attention from a museum configuration and interactive video.[8][9]

Mas Allá de lo Aparente[edit | edit source]

A series of 12 sculptures including wood over acryllic, canvas and Plexiglass. Here the artist plays with light and its projections.[10] Irene pays special attention to making pieces that change as the observer walks around them, playing with what is real and unreal.[11] Colors, figures and patterns emerge from her plexiglass artwork constituting a play of perspectives,. Here Irene pays special attention to the observer's position and immersion. This exhibit traveled from Venice and Berlin.[12]

When this exhibit traveled to Berlin, it formed part of the inauguration of the Mexican Cultural Institute in Germany.[11]
