БАМ: Байкало-Амурская магистраль
BAM – The Baikal-Amur Mainline is a railway line.

BAM became the symbol of Soviet history and ideology, based on huge, impressive projects and plans.

To bring an ideological system to its absolutely emancipated form is rarely a successful experiment, as the system itself adapts to the reality of its surroundings, loses its purity or stops its growth. The reflection on these ideological structures, which have a historical, social, political or cultural origin, is the central theme of Hector Zamora’s sculptural installations. In PAC, Zamora introduces a boat that could not be finished since the physical space where the construction started proved too small. He reflects on the former political model of socialism and the marks it left on society. But the work reaches beyond that, as the boat itself has a complex symbolical and iconographical tradition, which transcends different cultural identities.
