This book is the companion book to the first retrospective of the work of renowned sculptor Doris Salcedo (Colombian, b. 1958) held at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and Guggenheim in 2015. Salcedo creates sculptures that are deeply rooted in her country’s social and political landscape, including its long history of civil conflicts. She grounds her art in rigorous fieldwork, which involves extensive interviews with people who have experienced loss and trauma in their everyday lives due to political violence. In more recent years, Salcedo has created large-scale, site-specific installations around the world, including Turkey, Italy, UK, and her native Colombia.
The book features all major bodies of work from the artist’s thirty-year career—most of which have never been shown together before. It is the most comprehensive survey of her sculptures and installations to date. In addition to featuring new contributions by respected scholars and curators, the book includes over one hundred colour illustrations highlighting many pieces from Salcedo's thirty-year career.
