Do-Ho Suh: Home Within Home

Do-Ho Suh: Home Within Home it has been modified: 2011-10-12 di Danielle


The latest exhibition of Do-Ho Suh invites us now to an anthropology of space. Inside Home Within Home, Which is up to 22 October at Lehmann Maupin GalleryNew York, presents replicas of their former homes in Seoul, and Rhode Island. His work reflects

the autobiographical experience of immigrating to the US in 1991, and automatically adapt to a culture, noisy, meeting with nostalgia, and draw inspiration from this experience to his work. The sculptures are made primarily in fabric, resin and polystyrene.

The work of Do-Ho Suh is characterized by the representation of the fundamental philosophical, social and spiritual, embodied in the various artists in previous exhibitions, as Causa y Efecto, Karma (2007-2008). In Home Within HomeThe artist follows the architecture of Refletion, The Perfect Home and other facilities. Here, in addition to spatial perception and memory, it is observable how a series of these become symbolic manifestations of the meeting of the cultures of East and West. The sense of displacement passes, combining this shift to substitution, cultural identity, and the intrinsic contrasts that adapt this type of experience in the first third person: who lives it internally as a subject, perceives and memorizes, and observing this union of cultures from tall, like a shock. This is reflected in the installation "Fallen Star 1 / 5" replica of his Korean house that crashes into an American house of the nineteenth century, in scale one to five. Work, obviously, impressive.
