Hector Zamora works mostly with objects and spaces of public use and gives new definitions to
their usual physical characteristics. Architectural elements, everyday city objects, and specific
construction materials are the universal core for building spatial compositions and pieces in his
diverse installations. Despite the high level of abstraction, finished objects have noticeable
connotations with the casualness of the locations.

performance at the Instrument-Making Plant in collaboration with Sverdlovsk Railways and Ural
