Doris Salcedo: Weeping names

Colombian sculptor Doris Salcedo's artwork weeps the names of migrants who have died.

Honouring the dead. An artwork that weeps the names of those who have died. Colombian sculptor, Doris Salcedo, is one of the most significant Latin American artists working today. For the last thirty years she has been making pieces on the theme of mourning. Her latest work honours those who died during the ongoing migrant crisis. An immense technical challenge, the effect is that stone slabs appear to weep the names of the dead.
