Hector Zamora was born in 1974 in Mexico City. He lives and works in Lisbon. He is represented by Labor Gallery in Mexico City and Luciana Brito in Sao Paulo.
Héctor Zamora’s work transcends the conventional exhibition space, redefining it, reinventing it, generating friction between the common roles of public and private, exterior and interior, organic and geometric, savage and methodical, real and imaginary. With his technical prowess and knowledge of lightweight structures in architecture, and a meticulous emphasis on the process of conceptualization and the construction of each piece, Zamora calls for the participation of the spectator and urges us to question the everyday uses of materials and the functions of space. Zamora accomplishes subverting each one of his sites, and in some of his interventions he plays with institutional structures, inserting himself at critical points where it is possible to find enough flexibility (i.e. weakness) to generate a reaction.
