Long known for his sculptures and fabric-based installations, Korean artist Do Ho Suh has opened his his exhibition with London’s Victoria Miro Gallery. Entitled “Passage/s,” the display is highlighted by a walkthrough of Hubs — a colorful polyester fabrication of a London flat that, like much of Suh’s work, explores the way in which we occupy space and “the porous boundaries of identity.” Presented alongside the massive Hubs display is a brand new collection of works that see Suh’s architectural pieces compressed into two-dimensional “drawings.” Crafted out of sewn pieces of gelatin tissue (like many of Suh’s three-dimensional fabric installations), the “drawings” are immersed in water to allow the gelatin to dissolve away, thus leaving behind an image in which the threads appear as the skeletal framework of the architectural designs.
“Passage/s” opened February 1 and will remain on display through March 18.
