Doris Salcedo: Acts of Mourning

Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin

NOW CLOSED

Doris Salcedo uses everyday materials such as textiles and furniture, creating sculptural installations that serve as haunting evocations of loss and mourning. These are often rooted in specific historical events of political violence, influenced by the artist’s own experience growing up in conflict-ridden Colombia. This first solo show in Ireland includes a series of recent works that relate to the theme of sexual violence. Find out more from IMMA’s website.
