"home within home."

I cannot wait, cannot wait to see the Do Ho Suh exhibit which opens next month at Lehman Maupin. I have long found his work fascinating...

His exploration of the home is both honest and distant at the same time. Which works perfectly for his concepts of displacement and identity.

The press release states:

In Home Within Home, Do Ho Suh will present a series of works that reflect the artist’s ongoing exploration of themes surrounding cultural displacement and the co-existence of cultural identities, as well as the perception of our surroundings and how one constructs a memory of a space. Suh’s own feeling of displacement when he arrived in the U.S. in 1991 to study at RISD led him to measure spaces in order to establish relationships with his new surroundings...

I wish I had seen these 2 works in person. I swoon at those steps.

See more of his work here.

Many of the same pics, but a little bigger and interesting read. I just love this work. Totally amazing.
