Doris Salcedo Retrospective in Miami Pays Witness to Loss

Doris Salcedo, Installation at 8th International Istanbul Biennial, 2003.  Salcedo’s idea was to create a “topography of war,” not tied to a specific historical event, but to war in general. Seeing these 1,550 wooden chairs piled high between two buildings in central Istanbul, one is reminded of mass graves, anonymous victims... of both chaos and absence, two effects of wartime violence.

Doris Salcedo, 2007, Shibboleth. Artist's statement: "It represents borders, the experience of immigrants, the experience of segregation, the experience of racial hatred. It is the experience of a Third World person coming into the heart of Europe. For example, the space which illegal immigrants occupy is a negative space. And so this piece is a negative space." Quoted from Wiki
