Art is impotent; it doesn’t solve anything. It can’t solve problems or bring people back to life; nor can it remedy reality. This lack of power is what defines it; it’s where the poetic essence of art lies.

Lives and works in Bogotá, Colombia


Doris Salcedo

The works of Doris Salcedo are not easy matter for the superficial viewer. She has set herself the goal of revealing the violencia universal in her works and of creating memorials intended to provoke soul-searching contemplation and encourage diverse memories (both individual and universal) as possible premises for thinking in new and deeper ways.

Salcedo’s work is thorough and well thought-out; nothing is left to chance; every detail counts. Often she works with pieces of furniture that refer specifically to human beings but that acquire an abstract character in her hands. With great subtlety she creates symbolism and obtains the necessary transcendence.

Noviembre 6 refers to the bloody confrontations during the violent storming of Bogotá’s Palace of Justice in 1985. The work consists of chairs and stools of various metals wedged into one another. Antagonistic elements dominate the treacherously calm scene; hard is pitted against soft; vulnerability and fragility go hand in hand with brutality. The dysfunctional treatment of her material, through disorientation and complete negation, becomes strikingly evident. It is hopeless to want to occupy one of the chairs: the effect of the installation is at once leaden and profoundly disturbing, and it becomes a metaphor for imprisonment, torture, and abduction, a memorial to all those who are not allowed to be and live in peace.
