It’s cold outside, so wander down to @whitecubeofficial from London bridge and check out two works by Doris Salcedo.
From ⬜️ website: “Doris Salcedo makes sculptures and installations that function as political and mental archaeology, using domestic materials charged with significance and suffused with meanings accumulated over years of use in everyday life. Salcedo often takes specific historical events as her point of departure, conveying burdens and conflicts with precise and economical means.” That’s a great summation, capturing the simplicity that makes her work difficult to forget and easy to remember. Her work with water weeps out the names of refugees that drowned in the Mediterranean and seeps into you. Her desks, destroyed and remade - representing women who have put themselves back together after sexual abuse shows the invisibility of victims, until you realise what has been recovered.
I recommend earlier morning visit, so you can hit up the Borough Market for food. The empenyada stand is worth all your money.
