Exhibition: Palimpsest, by Doris Salcedo

Doris Salcedo (Bogotá, 1958) turns the spotlight on all the people who have drowned in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic in the last 20 years as they tried to migrate to a better life.

Salcedo (Bogotá, 1958) uses sculpture and installations to explore scenes of conflict, where violence and its victims, memory and forgetfulness, are always present.

On pavement tiles made using complex hydraulic engineering, the piece on show at the Palacio de Cristal writes in drops of water the names of some of the men and women who have died in the attempt to reach a better, freer life.
