sintesi del comunicato stampa

Shown daily on loop while the exhibition Doris Salcedo is on view, this video documents Doris Salcedo's site-specific works and ephemeral public projects, which have formed a central aspect of her artistic production over the past 15 years. Salcedo's interventions in the public sphere reflect her desire to engage communities through acts of collective mourning and remembrance, exploring the shared expression of private pain. Ms. Salcedo has made numerous public works, most of them temporary, commemorative 'interventions' that evoke the passage of time: 1,150 wooden chairs packed into the space left by a demolished house in Istanbul; an enormous plaza in Bogota', Colombia, filled with rows of lighted candles; a meandering crack in the concrete floor of Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. (The refilled crack can still be traced, like a ghost monument.) We learn about these projects and the dedicated people who help Ms. Salcedo realize them from a film within the exhibition and from the informative catalog. It is fascinating to have a glimpse of this major part of Ms. Salcedo's achievement, but also tantalizing. Once again, we are made to long for what is absent. Friday, July 3, 2015, 11 am-5:30 pm
