‘home within home’ is a solo representation of do ho suh’s work showcasing the korean artist’s newest sculptural pieces. the special exhibition gallery of leeum samsung museum of art has been decorated with suh’s thread-and-sheer-fabric-drawn representations of his nomadic existence living in major urban centers such as seoul, new york and berlin. in ‘home within home’, the artist investigates the idea of truly inhabiting a place, developing the concept of ‘home’ as skeletal representations throughout the museum, actualizing this concept as both a boundary and passageway in the gallery space. each piece exists as an entirely separate experience, influenced by the light and surrounding architecture; the orientation of the suspended works in comparison to one another also reveals a greater complexity to the artist’s examination of ‘the home’ through this assemblage of bright floating structures.
