MALDONADO VILLALOBOS, Eduardo. Body and Image in Héctor Zamora’s Installation. Paracaidista Av. Revolución 1608 bis. An. Inst. Investig. Estét [online]. 2018, vol.40, n.112, pp.67-98. ISSN 0185-1276.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22201/iie.18703062e.2018.112.2624.

The article delivers an interpretation of the installation Paracaidista Av. Revolución 1608 bis, by Mexican artist Héctor Zamora, built on the façade of the Carrillo Gil Art Museum in 2004, using its urban setting as a reference point. The contrast between image and body is emphasized by the conjunction of the façade’s placement and the use of the installation as a dwelling. The façade is understood as an area destined primarily for the image, while the dwelling was activated as a visual interruption of the perceptive conditioning of the city, which offers surfaces of this sort for publicity uses. The article suggests that the intervention represents an interference by means of the body that dwells, revealing a vertical emptiness which cannot be escaped, whether as image or as fiction.

Palavras-chave : Contemporary art in Mexico City; art intervention; public space; urban visuality; architectural façades.
