overview

Do Ho Suh (b. 1962, Seoul, South Korea) is internationally acclaimed for meticulous, mesmerizing sculptures and installations that relate to his personal experiences living in both Eastern and Western cultures. Suh’s move from South Korea to the United States in 1991 to attend the Rhode Island School of Design inspired his focus on the house as a primary subject. Reimagining and reconstructing his various homes, the artist creates works of art that highlight the porous boundary between public and private space, and explore notions of global identity, space, nomadism, memory, and displacement.
