February is a short month – a blessing, perhaps – but that means that March is already running away with us. So, I want to take this opportunity to remind you not to miss this major show by Korean-born artist Do Ho Suh, his first in London with Victoria Miro gallery. This is the most substantial exhibition of Suh’s work since his Serpentine solo presentation in 2001, and includes not only a show-stopping, large scale installation, but smaller three dimensional works as well as new works on paper and films.
The gallery website warns visitors to avoid peak times and to be prepared to queue for Do Ho Suh. The staff at Victoria Miro will have become accustomed to managing huge crowds for their shows in recent years. Grayson Perry’s tapestries attracted record numbers of visitors to Wharf Road in 2012; last year Yayoi Kusama’s installations had visitors queuing down the street weekend after weekend.
