building the plan

2013-12-05 Do Ho Suh

From Tami

Continuing with the theme of “in praise of the plan”.  Do Ho Suh’s experiential sculpture entitled ‘Home Within Home Within Home Within Home Within Home’ creates a 1:1 replica of  two of his homes – his childhood home in Korea wrapped by his first home in the U.S.. In addition to addressing themes of textiles as shelter, and home and migration (Ms. Edelkoort take note) – I will speculate that he measured their floor plans and elevations – “working backwards” to create a new space. I love that the inner childhood home floats above you.  Currently exhibiting at Korea’s National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Gwacheon he has brought his private space back to his home country to roost inside the very public space of the museum – as artifact.
