Modern MC, minimodern.blogspot.com, posted links to some amazing photos from this exhibit last week, but I wanted to share some more pictures and see if anyone plans to go see it. The details look incredible, I just wish there were more close up shots of the interior rooms.
Do Ho Suh
Home Within Home
8 September – 22 October, 2011
Lehmann Maupin Gallery
540 West 26th Street, New York, NY
"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. Years later, the artist developed the idea of taking these measurements and using them to replicate and transport spaces. Suh constructs these architectural spaces and the elements within them in various mediums including fabrics, resin, and Styrofoam. Among the works exhibited in this show will be Fallen Star 1/5, Home Within Home, and a series of fabric objects, all personally revealing works which invite viewers into his homes."
