Do Ho Suh in Venice

Exhibitions and projects during the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia: a new film by, commissioned by the V&A; work featured in Architectural Ethnography from Tokyo: Guidebooks and Projects on Livelihood; a solo exhibition at Victoria Miro Venice.

 

A new film by Do Ho Suh, commissioned by the V&A. La Biennale di Venezia and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, present Robin Hood Gardens: A Ruin in Reverse, curated by Christopher Turner and Olivia Horsfall Turner, a special project at the Applied Arts Pavilion at the Biennale Architettura 2018. 26 May–25 November 2018.

 

The V&A has commissioned Do Ho Suh, whose practice centres on the idea of home as both a physical structure and a lived experience, to create a work in response to the architecture and interiors of Robin Hood Gardens while the second of the two blocks, due to be demolished in 2019, is still occupied. Suh's panoramic film, Robin Hood Gardens, Woolmore Street, London E14 0HG, 2018, is both site-specific and time-specific - a document of the Smithson's modular interiors as they have been adapted, decorated and furnished by residents. Suh has used time-lapse photography, drone footage, 3D-scanning and photogrammetry to create a visual journey in which the camera seamlessly pans through the building. It is a meditation on home, memory and displacement within a physical structure that is on the verge of demolition, less than fifty years after the architects' utopian vision was completed.

 

Work by Do Ho Suh will feature in Architectural Ethnography from Tokyo: Guidebooks and Projects on Livelihood, curated by Momoyo Kaijima, the Japan Pavilion Exhibition at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. 26 May–25 November 2018.

 

A solo exhibition at Victoria Miro Venice. Made at the STPI Creative Workshop in Singapore, the new works on view in this exhibition are part of the artist's ongoing Rubbing/Loving project, in which rubbings of interior spaces and everyday objects are created in a process that discloses and memorialises details of the artist's surroundings. 25 May–7July 2018.
