Books Info:

Doris Salcedo free pdf Doris Salcedo, a sculptor who lives and works in Bogota, Colombia, is a rising international star. This is a comprehensive monograph of her work and its humanitarian and political content. Her haunting sculptures and installations are painstakingly made from found objects left in the abandoned homes of missing people in Colombia - personal effects such as furniture or shoes which become symbols of a vanished existence, suggesting the desperation and silent violence of ongoing acts of inhumanity.
