An installation by Doris Salcado featuring 1,600 chairs squeezed between two buildings in Istanbul. This work takes reference from conditions of forced displacement and how it equals to a form of incarceration, which artist Doris Salcedo calls a “Topography of War”.

This untitled installation, made in 1990, was in direct response to an incident in Colombia in 1988, where male banana plantation workers were dragged from their homes and murdered. The shirts are bright white, carefully laundered and folded, piled up and waiting to be worn. Steel poles pierce each pile, pinning them to the floor. This piercing of the soft white cotton, with hard steel, implies a violent interruption. Doris Salcedo.
