Do-Ho-Suh-Home-Within-Home-1

Korean artist Do Ho Suh creates massive installations and what is probably best described as sculpture. Suh sews together his transparent works that are as close as possible to the actual size of the reproduced pieces, including an entire replica (above and below) of a house he once lived in in Providence, RI, entitled ‘Home Within Home Within Home Within Home Within Home’. Using massive amounts of silk and nylon he creates virtual 3-D objects such as the meticulously rendered appliances shown further down on this post.

“Site specific sculptures and individual appliances from Suh’s homes have been featured at famous galleries around the world, from the Museum of Modern Art and Guggenheim Museum in New York, to the Tate Modern in London. You can see his currently running exhibition at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in his home Seoul through May 11, 2014.”
