Abstract (English)

"This pioneering book, which focuses on Salcedo’s works from the 1980s to the present, examines the development and evolution of her approach. These sculptures have pushed toward new extremes, incorporating organic materials—rose petals, grass, soil—in order to blur the line between the permanent and the ephemeral. This insightful text illuminates the artist’s practice: exhaustive personal interviews and deep research joined with painstaking acts of making that both challenge limits and set new directions in materiality." -- Publisher's website.
