Artist Bio

Do Ho Suh

Do Ho Suh (b. 1962, Seoul, Korea; lives and works in London and Seoul) works across various media, creating drawings, film, and sculptural works that confront questions of home, physical space, displacement, memory, individuality, and collectivity. Suh is best known for his fabric sculptures that reconstruct to scale his former homes in Korea, Rhode Island, Berlin, London, and New York. Suh is interested in the malleability of space in both its physical and metaphorical forms, and examines how the body relates to, inhabits, and interacts with that space. He is particularly interested in domestic space and the way the concept of home can be articulated through architecture that has a specific location, form, and history. For Suh, the spaces we inhabit also contain psychological energy, and in his work he makes visible those markers of memories, personal experiences, and a sense of security, regardless of geographic location.

 

Suh received a BFA in painting from Rhode Island School of Design in 1994 and an MFA in sculpture from Yale University in 1997. Solo exhibitions of his work have recently been organized at Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC (forthcoming, 2018); Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville, TN (forthcoming, 2018); Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, WI (2017); Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, CA (2016); Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, OH (2016); Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, OH (2015); Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2015); The Contemporary Austin, TX (2014); National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul (2013); 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan (2012-2013); Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan (2012); Stuart Collection, University of San Diego, California (2012);  Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul (2012); and Tate Modern, London (2011). Select group exhibitions featuring his work include Art of the Senses, Albright-Knox Gallery, Buffalo, NY (forthcoming, 2017); No Place Like Home, The Israel Museum, Jerusalem (2017); Apparitions: Frottages and Rubbings from 1860 to Now, The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, traveled to the Menil Collection, Houston, TX (2015); Beyond and Between, Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul (2014); Shades of Time: An Exhibition from the Archive of Korean American Artists, Part Two 1989 - 2001, Queens Museum, NY (2014); Homebodies, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2013); Dislocation, Daegu Art Museum, South Korea (2012); and Peppermint Candy: Contemporary Korean Art, The National Museum of Contemporary Art, Gwacheon, South Korea (2009). Suh has participated in multiple biennial exhibitions, including the Singapore Biennial (2016); the 9th Gwangju Biennale, South Korea (2012); the 6th Liverpool Biennial, United Kingdom (2010); the 12th International Architecture Exhibition, Venice, Italy (2010); the 8th International Istanbul Biennial (2003); the 13th Biennial of Sydney (2002); and represented Korea at the 49th Venice Biennale (2001). His work is in numerous international public and private collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; Tate Modern, London; Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul; Art Sonje Center, Seoul; Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; and 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan.

 

In 2013, Do Ho Suh was named Wall Street Journal Magazine's Innovator of the Year in Art.
