In Memorándum Zamora merges special characteristics of the building with a mechanical activity, generally associated with the female gender. Zamora critically refers to the functioning of global governmental, bureaucratic and institutional systems of power and points to the role of the secretary in the misogynist, capitalist workforce. Subjugation and invisibility of the female role are subverted by the artist in a type of homage-action that establishes participants as the sole presence during the action, while they weave a self-referential narrative as they type their own biographies. The constructive, visual and sound elements of Memorándum refer to assembly plants, factories and workshops.
Within the context of (IM)POSSIBLE BODIES, not only women but all human beings become subjugated by the new rules of technology. With Memorándum we mourn what has been lost while also recognizing how have always been merged with machines, becoming cyborgs.
