Héctor Zamora is a Mexican artist based in Lisbon, Portugal. Working extensively in public space over the past decade, the artist creates major works that often rearticulate the physical characteristics of a specific urban or architectural environment. Creating structures that enhance or highlight particular characteristics or patterns of social use of that space and environment, the artist often utilizes materials that also carry a particular resonance within that location.
Zamora often draws the local community into the process of not only experiencing the work of art, but also as a part of the creation. The artist reimagines these public spaces through the implementation of sculptural additions made from materials with a specific significance within each site to interact with the community consciousness.
For Cappadox Contemporary Art program, he created an Eastern type labyrinthine structure with the locally produced permeable bricks, which offers a kind of metaphor about the times that Turkey and the world had been passing through. The installation was visited at the Avanos park by the Red River (Kızılırmak).
