Experiences of violence and loss take shape in the work of internationally acclaimed Colombian artist Doris Salcedo. Although her sculptures and installations are often based on concrete events, feelings of grief, alienation and loss of home take on a universally valid, heartfelt expression in her works. Different materials such as stone and concrete, wooden furniture, grass, petals, hair or pieces of clothing are transformed and charged with meaning. Rarely do individual pain and collective grief find such a touching form or has their social overcoming been formulated so forcefully. Created in close collaboration with the artist, the catalogue offers a comprehensive survey over Salcedo's work from 1986 to 2022.
DORIS SALCEDO (*1958, Bogotá) is internationally renowned for her sculptures, site-specific installations and public interventions that address the traumas of violence, racism and other forms of marginalization. In 2003, on the occasion of the Istanbul Biennial, she stacked 1,550 chairs between two buildings; in 2007, she drove a 167-meter-long crack into the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern for her work Shibboleth. Her most recent work Uprooted (2020 - 22) has been presented at the Sharjah Biennial.
