Marina Camargo | Héctor Zamora
This conversation between Marina Camargo and Héctor Zamora will approach ideas related to the latter’s artistic practice and how space is altered through his interventions, performances, installations, and site-specific works. Among Héctor Zamora’s most recent projects are “Strangler” (2021), made for the Triennial Bruges, and “Lattice Detour” (2020), a curved wall made of terracotta bricks, commissioned as a site-specific installation for the Metropolitan Museum’s rooftop in New York.
The event will take place online, but it will also be possible to follow it from diffrakt. To register for either, please send a brief message to email@example.com
Pandemic: The event is (partly) an in-person event and the number of participants thus, in accordance with current COVID-19 regulations, strictly limited.
