Doris Salcedo

The idea for “Plegaria Muda,” which includes blades of grass rising through wooden tables, came after Doris Salcedo spent time in Los Angeles with women who had lost children to gang wars.

Politically speaking, you don’t have to be a house to be haunted. All you need to be is someone who keeps an eye on the news; who pays attention to loss through violence; and feels a personal stake in that loss, as if it were happening to people you know and care about, to people who live in your home.
