    Doris Salcedo’s Shibboleth is the first work to intervene directly in the fabric of the Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern in London. Rather than fill this iconic space with a conventional sculpture or installation, Salcedo has created a subterranean chasm that stretches the length of the Turbine Hall. The concrete walls of the crevice are ruptured by a steel mesh fence, creating a tension between these elements that resist yet depend on one another.

    Salcedo is addressing a long legacy of racism and colonialism that underlies the modern world.

    This work is remarkable, both symbolically and visually!
