Igor Vidor has spent the last years driven by an interest in investigating the relationship between the (physical and/or social) body and its o en oppressive and violent social and urban contexts. During his research, the artist collected a series of objects that convey remnant signs of a state of violence that is deeply rooted in the daily life of these different contexts. In choosing such elements Vidor shows how symbols of violence are naturalized and end up gaining new meanings, be they playful, related to the logic of marketing and consumption, linked to social aspirations or status, making us ponder upon how such friction fuels an intermittent and seemingly unsolvable violence, that finds echoes and recurrences in the history of Brazil.

His work includes collections such as the Museum of Art of Rio and Itaú Cultural Institute and Pérez Art Museum Miami. In 2016 he was the rst Brazilian invited to participate at the International Fellowship Programm by the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art Seoul - MMCA.
