Doris Salcedo’s Materiality of Mourning, a triumph in exploring trauma

November 14, 2016

Colombian-born artist Doris Salcedo’s The Materiality of Mourning at the Harvard Art Museum visualizes how trauma impacts the world around us through everyday objects. The exhibition’s dark lighting is not only slightly dizzying but also transcendent in its ability to create both an ominous and intimate environment to showcase Salcedo’s works. The trauma Salcedo has experienced because of political turmoil in Colombia from governmental civil war, drug cartels, leftist guerilla militias and right-wing paramilitary groups reveals itself in the different dynamics within each work.
