Doris Salcedo on Bogotá | Artist Cities | TateShots

English: Shibboleth, Tate Modern, LondonDoris Salcedo is an artist who lives and works in Bogotá, Colombia. The artist makes sculptures and installations in response to her research into the experiences of those affected by violence, particularly by the civil war in her native country.

In 2006 Salcedo completed Shibboleth, one of the most audacious of the Unilever Series commissions for Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, by cutting a jagged trench down the whole length of the concrete floor, as a reminder of man-made borders and divisions.
