1974, Mexico City, Mexico. Lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal
Héctor Zamora’s work problematizes historical, social and political questions related to contemporary society. His works reconcile opposites and create a critical estrangement able to displace meanings and understandings. He generally subverts the architectural spaces, redefining and re-signifying the conventional.
Héctor Zamora studied graphic design and structural geometry. Venues that have hosted his solo shows most notably include Itaú Cultural (São Paulo, 2010); the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (CCBB), São Paulo (2016); the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2016); and the Pavilhão Branco, Lisbon (2018). Venues of group shows in which he participated include the 27th Bienal de São Paulo (2006); the 9th and 12th editions of the Bienal de Havana (2006 and 2015); the 53rd Venice Biennale (2009); and the 11th and 14th editions of the Bienal de Lyon (2011 and 2017). Currently, Zamora is presenting the installation Lattice Detour at the Metropolitan Museum of New York.
