Research: Process & Material


Installation for the 8th International Istanbul Biennial
Doris Salcedo

Salcedo used 1,600 wooden chairs for this installation, most of which was installed piece by piece rather than by chair by chair. She needed to have a great understanding of the infrastructure of the material and "sculpture" of the chair and how it would fit in relation to other chairs and within the alley.


City Hiding Series
Liu Bolin

He chooses places he finds interesting and sometimes with a political message. With a lot of patience, he then photographs is from many angles, poses for long periods of time (sometimes for 10 hours or more), determines the design to be created on his body, and then he must stand unmoved until the design is painted on him. He is then "invisible."
