Finding a Form for the Traumas of Loss and Violence

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.
