Destierro
Anish Kapoor
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Monument to the victims of terrorism in Parque de la Memoria

Currently the world is facing a social problem that is much more urgent and harder to resolve than the disputes over the physical boundaries between nations: displacement (destierro), understood as the condition of those forced to abandon their country to escape wars or political conflicts. Anish Kapoor’s installation is a reaction to this situation. One hundred tons of earth dyed in a deep red tone occupy a previously passable space, keeping visitors from moving forward, as if under siege. The displacement of earth conditions the displacement of people.
