Do-Ho Suh

Posted by Maya Davies,

Another artist exploring themes of time and space. After moving to the States, he began recreating significant architectural spaces from his childhood house in Korea, as well as his apartment in New York. I love his fabric sculptural-installations. The striking colours, delicacy and translucence of the fabric make the pieces feel ethereal and dream-like, hanging in ‘transitional’ space like a memory; a physical representation of his cultural displacement or longing for home. Fabric was a natural choice of material as it afforded Suh the possibility of carrying the pieces in a suitcase, so his notion of ‘home’ could be easily transportable and ‘infinitely repeated’.
