GALLERY: Home/Away

Against today’s backdrop of globalization, Do Ho Suh’s artwork contemplates notions of identity and place: What does home mean? Where do you belong? The London-based Suh studied art in his native Korea as well as in the United States. Whether wrestling with the armature of clothing or of the homeland, he mines decidedly architectural terrain. His creations provoke us to question the boundaries of space and the geography of expatriation.
