Description Of What One Cannot Speak de Mieke Bal:

Doris Salcedo, a Colombian-born artist, addresses the politics of memory and forgetting in work that embraces fraught situations in dangerous places. Noted critic and theorist Mieke Bal narrates between the disciplines of contemporary culture in order to boldly reimagine the role of the visual arts. Both women are pathbreaking figures, globally renowned and widely respected. Doris Salcedo, meet Mieke Bal. In "Of What One Cannot Speak," Bal leads us into intimate encounters with SalcedoOCOs art, encouraging us to consider each work as a OC theoretical objectOCO that invitesOCoand demandsOCocertain kinds of considerations about history, death, erasure, and grief. Bal ranges widely through SalcedoOCOs work, from SalcedoOCOs "Atrabiliarios" seriesOCoin which the artist uses worn shoes to retrace "los desaparecidos" (OC the disappearedOCO) from nations like Argentina, Chile, and ColombiaOCoto "Shibboleth," SalcedoOCOs once-in-a-lifetime commission by the Tate Modern, for which she created a rupture, as if by earthquake, that stretched the length of the museum hallOCOs concrete floor. In each instance, SalcedoOCOs installations speak for themselves, utilizing household items, human bones, and common domestic architecture to explore the silent spaces between violence, trauma, and identity. Yet Bal draws out even deeper responses to the work, questioning the nature of political art altogether and introducing concepts of metaphor, time, and space in order to contend with SalcedoOCOs powerful sculptures and installations. An unforgettable fusion of art and essay, "Of What One Cannot Speak" takes us to the very core of events we are capable of rememberingOCoyet still uncomfortably cannot speak aloud." Mieke Bal is Academy Professor at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences and a cofounder of the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam. Her many books include "Loving Yusuf: Conceptual Travels from Present to Past," also published by the University of Chicago Press.
