What does it mean to have a “home,” especially if you lead a nomadic life? South Korean artist Do Ho Suh has made the nature of the space we inhabit a theme in much of his work. Using sheer material (silk or polyester) suspended over a metal armature, Suh re-built his past living quarters in Seoul, New York City and Berlin. This summer for the exhibit ‘Home within Home‘ at the Leeum Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, each floating structure inhabited a separate space in the gallery actualizing the artist’s itinerant existence.
Suh will address similar issues in an upcoming exhibit, entitled “Perfect Home,” at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan Nov 23, 2012 – March 17, 2013.
