“Do Ho Suh” on view @ MMoCA
Do Ho Suh, a solo exhibition of the Korean artist, is on view at Madison Museum of Contemporary Art (MMoCA) until May 14, 2017.
“Located primarily in MMoCA’s main galleries, this multi-part installation presents large-scale architectural structures, documentary films, illuminated sculptures, and works on paper. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a full-scale replica of Suh’s New York City apartment and studio created from translucent colored fabric. Entering into the space, audience members can wander through its dreamlike interior rooms and passageways, and revel in the details of its delicately sewn radiators, sinks, and bricks. In addition, a separate room within the gallery contains objects from the artist’s Specimen Series—a collection of domestic appliances, such as a refrigerator and stove, that Suh replicated in diaphanous fabric and installed in light-filled Plexiglas boxes.”
