Do Ho Suh

New York

Lehmann Maupin

Do Ho Suh, easily one of the most interesting sculptors working in America today, presented a lot of things in this show—models of homes (one like a dollhouse and the other done in a pale-green resin), as well as such mundane objects as a sink, a circuit-breaker, and a doorknob (the last three made of translucent cloth). As early as 1991, when Suh left his residence in Korea to study at the Rhode Island School of Design, he sought to mitigate the anxiety of his displacement by measuring the spaces that he occupied in America. These elements correspond to actual homes and objects in the artist’s life and serve as a way of establishing the reality of home in a foreign country.…see the entire review in the print version of July/August’s Sculpture magazine.
