Art – the gift to expose

Chris Bourne sent me this link to Doris Salcedo in Bogota. She says ‘Art cannot explain things but it can expose them.’

Very powerful in undermining the oblivion the government sought to place on the people. Opening up the gift of lament to the people.

Art touches the imagination (future), the memory (past) as it engages the people in the here and now. Enjoy! Though that is probably not the appropriate word to use…
