DO HO SUH: SPECIMENS
Frist Art Museum / 919 Broadway October 12, 2018 - January 6, 2019
Do Ho Suh
Korean artist Do Ho Suh creates astonishingly detailed and lyrical sculptural installations that alter perceptions of built environments and how the body relates to space. The centerpiece of this exhibition will be his Specimen Series, which explores details of Suh’s domestic existence such as light switches, door handles, electric panels and appliances taken from his living spaces and recreated in fabric. By isolating these objects, Suh invites the viewer to reflect on their everyday interaction with the seemingly mundane.
Organized by The Frist Center for the Visual Arts
