Doris Salcedo

Colombian artist Doris Salcedo gained international prominence through exhibitions like Documenta 11 and last year's Istanbul Biennale for work examining her country's political past. Often incorporating domestic furniture and human remains like bone and hair, Salcedo's sculptures act as monuments to the thousands of victims of the civil war whose traces were systematically erased by the government. Inspired by her readings of philosophy (esp. Emmanuel Levinas) and literature (Samuel Beckett, Paul Celan), her work goes beyond the specifics of her native country. Her lecture tonight will offer a meditation on violence, collective memory and loss. Her numerous solo exhibitions include the New Museum for Contemporary Art, New York (1998), Tate Gallery, London (1999), SF MOMA (1999) and Camden Arts Centre, London (2001).
