Hector Zamora

Uma Boa Ordem, Hector Zamora ism Lucia Koch, Sao Paulo Biennale (2006)
In earlier projects like Paracaidista at the ‘Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil’ (Mexico City) and Subtraction/Addition in the ‘Antioquia Museum of Art’, Medellín (Colombia), Zamora forges a social link between the institute and its immediate surroundings. The 'Paracaidista' is a monumental parasite attached to the outside wall of the museum, which was inhabited for three months. In Medellin Zamora occupies the administrative spaces of the museum, which is located in the city's red light district. Assisted by local prostitutes he creates the autonomous bar Las Divas. In Genk Zamora also intends to start a dialogue between the refurbished mine site and the multicoloured Vennestraat. The artist continually creates spatial experiences based on geometrical structures. The functionality of space and current economic considerations are guiding principles in his work. In 2006 work by Hector Zamora was presented at the Biennales of Sao Paulo (Brazil), Busan (South Korea) and Havana (Cuba).
