Doris Salcedo is a Colombian sculptor who often uses domestic materials (such as furniture) in her work, to reference both personal and political histories. The installation shown here was for the International Instanbul Biennale in 2003, consisting of over 1550 chairs stacked between two city buildings. More of Salcedo's work can be seen here. The photo of her installation was taken by Muammer Yanmaz, who also has powerful work. Via Design*Sponge.
