Doris Salcedo: installation, Istanbul Biennial, 2003
Over 1600 chairs went into making this incredible urban art installation project. The chairs are aged, each with its own history that contributes a piece of the story of the overall installation. The sheer volume and time associated with placing these chair-by-chair in place is impressive enough, regardless of intention.
Doris Salcedo (born 1958) is a Colombian-born sculptor.
