Igor Vidor explores mechanisms of power and oppression and their expression in objects or social codes in a variety of mostly urban settings in Brazil. His sculptures, performances and videos convey signs of deep-rooted violence and social injustice in people’s everyday lives. He reflects how these conditions are repeated again and again as a result of Brazilian politics. His recent works analyse the influence of the United States and European countries, notably the role the arms trade has played in the spread of violence in Brazil and Latin America.
