Doris Salcedo ‘Shibboleth’, An Art Installation To Be Sealed At Tate Modern

An art installation, made by Colombian artist Doris Salcedo, is being filled in due to many injuries. This happens just six months after it was installed along the length of Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. Tate Modern unveiled the latest commission in The Unilever Series six months ago. Shibboleth, by Doris Salcedo, was the first work to intervene with the fabric of the building. Dramatically breaking open the floor of the Turbine Hall, Salcedo had created a striking yet intricate subterranean sculpture that ran the length of the building. The work raised questions about the historic and current divisions that exist in society.
