Leaving home

As some of you might remember, I am very interested in the work of the Korean artist Do Ho Suh. Not only is it very beautiful, it also explores themes which I myself spend a lot of time thinking about; it has to do with house & home, space & place – what does it mean to inhabit or to dwell somewhere? And I also love the precision in his craft – a wonderful & strange kind of fabric architecture (ghost architecture?) …

Interested in the malleability of space in both its physical and metaphorical manifestations, Do Ho Suh (b.1962, Seoul, Korea)  constructs site-specific installations that question all kinds of boundaries.
