Irene Aldazabal is an Argentinean artist born in 1993. She has studied Fine Arts -Professor and Bachelor's degree, with a double major in Sculpture and Printmaking- at the National University of La Plata. She is currently based in Scotland, where she graduated from the Master of Fine Arts and Humanities at Dundee University, with the support of the Global Excellence Scholarship.

Irene finds in living sculptures and fragile assemblages the main modalities for her work. With a particular emphasis on materiality, temporality and their transformative aspects, she co-creates across disciplinary and species boundaries and explores the notions of coexistence, embodiment and impermanence. 

Her artistic practice is rooted to land and is intertwined with the place where she grew up: the Andean Patagonia. Cohabiting with territories, paying close attention to what is latent and transpiring in our collective surroundings, she investigates and speculates about possible ways of relating to and within an environment shared with others.
