The Hole. Video installation in collaboration with Neli Ruzic, curated by Andrea Torreblanca. Alternative Space, First Encounter of Transversal Art: Transdisciplinary Dialogues, National Center of Arts, Mexico City.
In this version of the video installation The Hole, three large projections constitute a triptych that articulates different perspectives on the same traumatic event that took place during World War II. The personal stories about the midwife, the only woman among the seven victims of Rudine Pit, the mythical stories that inhabit the imaginary, as well as the silence that ties past and present, all intersect. A fourth screen shows the records of a camera that descends down the pit. The haphazard and rough images caused by the uncontrolled movement of the device refer to the ineffable aspect of the hole. The visitor’s immersion and the incitement to recreate their own narrative of events was favored due to the size of the screens and the hole’s dark space.

Irreconcilable nature, curated by Francisco Garduño and Dante Herrera. Arterial Space Gallery, University of Communication. Mexico City. The group exhibition, curatorial initiative of the Communication and Management of Culture and Arts career of the University of Communication, proposes a critical speech towards the concept of violence in a genealogical, political and social context, as an involuntary act of acceptance and evidence based on the work of different artists, held by students and teachers who managed the project. The video installation The Hole was presented in this exhibition.
Recto Verso, curated by Andrea Torreblanca. NM Contemporary Art gallery. Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico.
This exhibition arises from the work process of five artists exploring abstraction as a formal mechanism. Making use of various means such as collage, diagrams, drawings, graphics and silhouettes, the artists capture common figures in order to find the boundaries between form and image. Andrea Torreblanca.

Index, curated by Andrea Torreblanca. Christopher Columbus Gallery, Cuernavaca Morelos, Mexico.
"Beyond the formal structure of the book, this exhibition stems from the idea of visual editing, where artists not only point or aim to a specific topic or subject, but rewire their own interests by selecting a book that gives them the guideline to put their own artistic practice. From a western book, an atlas of war, an encyclopedia for the modern woman or an astronomy manual, the works displayed in this exhibition serve as notes, outlines, appropriations and conclusions from what has already been classified and previously ordered. Thus the title of this exhibition is proposed not only as a list of random chapters, but tries to function as a sort of epigraph for future approaches and associations to these processes." Andrea Torreblanca.

Mexparismental Festival, curated by Angelica Cuevas. Cinema La Clef, Paris, France.
"It constitutes video and film with no narrative, contemplative, minimalist and poetic form that intertwine in order to show the diversity of contemporary experimental creation of film and the Mexican and Latin American video," added the curator. The films presented at the screening of this year, held in Paris, were mostly of Mexican origin, produced between 2004 and 2006.
