The Korean-born artist Do Ho Suh is best known for the fabric reconstructions of his former homes that he has been making since the late 1990s. In these sculptural installations, as well as work in other media such as film and drawing, the artist explores the question of what ‘home’ means – of our attachment to particular spaces, and how they shape our identity. Later this month Suh will unveil Proposal for Sach’ŏnwang-sa (2021), a new installation at the London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE that considers the parallels between the Roman site and the ancient Korean temple of Sach’ŏnwang-sa.
Where is your studio?
In Hackney, London.
What do you like most about the space?
I’m lucky enough to have double-height windows so, although it is not that big a space, the light is amazing. The tall ceilings give me room to think.
