For the first time in Mexico, Héctor Zamora is presenting a project taken from the new direction of investigation pursued by his work, which involves actions in the creation of his site-specific interventions.
In Memorandum Zamora merges the special characteristics of the building with a mechanical activity, generally associated with the female gender, to set out diverse lines of interpretation of a sociological and political character related to the local and global context. Zamora critically refers to the functioning of the governmental, bureaucratic and institutional systems of power and points to the role of the secretary in the misogynist, capitalist workforce.
