A walk through of Do Ho Suh’s installation Passage/s

Created from stitched planes of translucent, coloured polyester fabric Suh's Hubs – delicately precise, weightless impressions of corridor-like points of intersection between rooms – seem to exist between imagination and reality, past and present. To move through them is to experience a distinct emotional register, a sense of being in flux, crossing boundaries and moving between psychological states. Filmed on the occasion of Do Ho Suh: Passage/s at Victoria Miro, February – March 2017. © Do Ho Suh, courtesy Marjoleine Boonstra and Reinier van Brummelen.
