Doris Salcedo. Palimpsesto.

Doris Salcedo presents her latest intervention titled Palimpsesto (Palimpsest) recently created for the Palacio de Cristal in Madrid, Spain. In this video produced by El País newspaper, Salcedo and her team—formed by architect Carlos Granada, documentalist and restorer Andrés Suárez, documentalist and architect Roberto Uribe, and agricultural engineer Diana Cortes—talk about the creation of this impressive and moving work.

A work that involved five years of research, conceptualization and execution, Palimpsesto is a large-scale intervention that brings art and technology together. The piece denounces and sheds light on one of the most dramatic events in our recent history: the death of thousands of illegal Arab and African immigrants who drown in the Mediterranean Sea while desperately trying to escape the terrible situations in their countries.

According to Salcedo, this "work seeks to cry for the victims; to do the mourning that we are not able to do. Salcedo relies on the strength, beauty and helplessness associated with water and sand in order to name and pay tribute to the victims of an event that has been silenced by indifference.
