Internationally renowned contemporary artist, Do Ho Suh will be showcasing a unique installation of his New York City Apartment at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery.

Commissioned especially for Bristol, New York City Apartment/Bristol will allow visitors to experience the ghost architecture of a soft corridor and staircase tailored from fabric based on the artist’s home in New York.

As a South Korean who has spent most of his adult life abroad; Do Ho Suh explores his personal sense of physical and cultural displacement through his work and is known for creating works that explore the issues of separation, migration, sense of loss and longing.

He does this through representing real objects such as furniture, rooms and buildings that serve as mementoes of real spaces, but in unusual materials or in an unexpected scale.

New York City Apartment/Bristol was developed in partnership with Arnolfini and commissioned with a significant grant from the Art Fund under Art Fund International, and further support from the Arts Council England/V&A Purchase Grant Fund and the Henry Moore Foundation.
