Hector Zamora is a Mexican artist that works in public spaces both indoors and outdoors. Zamora’s work questions the exhibition space by creating ephemeral site-specific artworks that involve viewers participation. In a hidden manner, his artistic practice reveals social, political and historical issues that are anchored to the sites chosen for his artwork. Both performative and plastic, Hector Zamora’s body of works functions as a dialogue in which Art is an object as well as an event.

Hector Zamora graduated from Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana-Xochimilco, Mexico City in graphic design in 1998.
