Chair masters

Installation for the 8th International Istanbul Biennial
2003 by Doris Salcedo

We have finally managed to gather a whole bunch of chairs
thanks to our "chair masters" ( you know who you are!!)
so today we would like to thank you with a little bit of art knowledge.

Introducing Doris Salcedo, a Columbian artist, she creates sculptures and installations that re-contextualize everyday domestic items as she alters their physical properties.

Using mundane objects and transforming them into something magnificent.

The artist is a member of a new generation of young South American artists who are gaining international recognition while remaining in their home countries.

some more about her here and here
