Ben Zamora is an American artist, whose work is primarily based in light. Over the last few years, Zamora has developed a body of work that creates a dialogue between the viewer and their environment, while addressing universal themes of life, transformation, and transcendence. His work focuses on creating experiences that are boldly immersive and intimate, engaging the viewer as an active participant. He has created large-scale installations and sculptures for the Park Avenue Armory in New York, The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Amsterdam Light Festival, Art Basel/Design Miami, Kunsthalle Krems in Austria, The Frye Art Museum, Suyama Space, as well as a number of other galleries, museums, private art collections, and public art projects.
Zamora’s work moves seamlessly between performance and visual art, where he creates light-based sculptures and art installations for performance-based work, including projects with Kronos Quartet, the Berlin Philharmonic, the Barbican, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. His artistic collaborators have included Bill Viola, Gronk, Peter Sellars, Steve Reich and Beryl Korot, architecture firm Olson Kundig Architects, Casey Curren, and Saint Genet.
Zamora's projects have been seen at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York, Mariinsky Theatre in Russia, Festival Aix-en-Provence, Brisbane Festival in Australia, the Donau Festival in Austria, Royal Festival Hall in London, Stockholm’s Baltic Sea Festival, the Helsinki Festival, the Berliner Festspiele, the Lucerne Festival in Switzerland, DeDoelen in The Netherlands, Le Grande Halle de La Villette in Paris, and The Getty Villa in Los Angeles.
