Doris Salcedo

Doris Salcedo's chair installation is so, is so, is so... well i don't even know how to quite describe it. take a look for your self.







I love how the sculpture interacts with its surroundings, and how meager its surounds are. I greatly enjoy the age of the chairs, each has its own story and life, each chair could be a stand alone art piece. Multitude and repetition can do one of two things in art work: accentuate the impact, or cheapen the subject, in this case i believe the multitude accentuates the individuality and importance of each chair. that is not easy to convey.
beautifully done.

i'm mesmerised by this. in a way it's quite surreal without being very obvious.

Ohhh wow, I've never seen anything like this. I love the chaos of the thousands of chairs combining to make one large statement. I wonder where on earth they found them all? LOVE.
