White Cube Hoxton Square is pleased to present an exhibition of sculpture by Colombian artist Doris Salcedo. A distilled survey of important sculptures made between 1989 and 2007, the exhibition has been organised to complement Salcedo's installation at Tate Modern's Turbine Hall.
Salcedo's work functions as political and mental archaeology, using domestic materials charged with significance and suffused with meanings accumulated over years of use in everyday life. In his catalogue essay, Rod Mengham describes Salcedo's work as a 'junction point, a crossing place for different objects, forms and meanings'. Salcedo often takes specific historical events as her point of departure, conveying burdens and conflicts with precise and economical means.
