9780714839295: Doris Salcedo (Contemporary Artists (Phaidon))

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.

On the Contemporary Artists Series "The boldest, best executed, and most far-reaching publishing project devoted to contemporary art. These books will revolutionize the way contemporary art is presented and written about."-Artforum "The combination of intelligent analysis, personal insight, useful facts and plentiful pictures is a superb format invaluable for specialists but also interesting for casual readers, it makes these books a must for the library of anyone who cares about contemporary art."-Time Out "A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists."-The Sunday Times "Gives the reader the impression of a personal encounter with the artists. Apart from the writing which is lucid and illuminating, it is undoubtedly the wealth of lavish illustrations which makes looking at these books a satisfying entertainment."-The Art Book

Book Description Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. With work in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and Tate, London, Colombian artist Doris Salcedo (b.1958) is one of today s most internationally respected South American sculptors. Inspired as much by poetry and philosophy as by the affecting material qualities of sculpture, Salcedo subtly and painstakingly transforms everyday household objects and garments - symbols of a vanished existence and of the human tragedies that are its cause. In Atrabiliaros (1991-6) abandoned shoes of disappeared Colombian people, half-concealed behind membranes of animal fibre, become ghost-like symbols of mourning. In Salcedo s ongoing untitled works, wooden furnishings, worn by long use and filled with concrete, mutely evoke the lives they once served. American art critic Nancy Princenthal surveys Salcedo s work in terms of the universal themes it evokes, contextualized in discussion of contemporary scultural practice. New York-based poet and curator Carlos Basualdo discusses with the artist her formative influences, which range from the art of precedecessors such as Joseph Beuys to the writings of philosophers and poets. German literary critic Andreas Huyssen focuses on Salcedo s sculpture Unland: The Orphan s Tunic (1997). For the Arist s Choice, Salcedo has selected two texts: an extract from Otherwise Than Being (1974) by philosopher Emmanuel Levinas, and poems by Paul Celan. The Doris Salcedo s observations on the human condition and its reflection in the work of poets, novelists and thinkers are discussed in conversation with art historian Charles Merewether.
