Do Ho Suh
Korean artist Do Ho Suh is known for his site-specific installations. In Passage/s he used stainless steel pipes and polyester fabric to explore the idea of home as both a physical structure and an experience, meticulously recreating the places he’s lived. In the summer of 2016 Suh used thin paper to cover the interior of an entire four story townhouse, then covered his fingers in pastels and rubbed down the entire place. Effectively that means he left a piece of himself behind in the Rubbing/Loving Project. His plan is to mount the rubbings on wooden panels and create a scale model of the house. I love his attachment to places and find it incredibly relatable – what will we see next from Do Ho Suh? I can’t wait.
