Doris Salcedo at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, June 26 – October 12, 2015

“The only concern of my work is what happens to human beings assaulted by violence. . . . the only possible response I can give in the face of irreparable absence is to produce images capable of conveying incompleteness, lack, and emptiness.” — Doris Salcedo.
