Igor Vidor nasceu em 1985, São Paulo.

Vive e trabalha em Berlim. 

 

 

Igor Vidor explora mecanismos de poder e opressão através de suas esculturas, performances e vídeos. Seus trabalhos apresentam sinais de violência e injustiça social profundamente enraizadas no cotidiano. O artista reflete como estas condições se repetem, perpetuando símbolos de violência que acabam ganhando novos significados. Permite-nos refletir sobre como este atrito contribui para um cenário de intermitente e aparentemente insolúvel violência que encontra ecos e recorrência na história do Brasil.

Seu trabalho tem sido apresentado em inúmeras exposições internacionais no Brasil, Alemanha, Japão, Coréia, Bulgaria, Suiça e EUA. Em 2016, ele foi o primeiro brasileiro convidado a participar do Programa de Intercâmbio Internacional pelo Museu Nacional de Arte Moderna e Contemporânea de Seul - MMCA.

Em 2019 deixa o Brasil, através da Iniciativa Martin Roth, após ameaças de morte por forças paramilitares no país.
