Doris Salcedo

Doris Salcedo, Installation at 8th International Istanbul Biennial, 2003. Salcedo’s idea was to create a “topography of war,” not tied to a specific historical event, but to war in general. Seeing these 1,550 wooden chairs piled high between two buildings in central Istanbul, one is reminded of mass graves, anonymous victims... of both chaos and absence, two effects of wartime violence.
