DO HO SUN: ALMOST HOME thru AUGUST 5, 2018

The Smithsonian American Art Museum presents the immersive, ethereal work of Korean artist Do Ho Sun. he creates hand-sewn fabric replicas of places he has lived, tracing his evolving views of home . . . .

From the Museum's website: Do Ho Suh’s immersive architectural installations—unexpectedly crafted with ethereal fabric—are spaces that are at once deeply familiar and profoundly alien. Suh is internationally renowned for his “fabric architecture” sculptures that explore the global nature of contemporary identity as well as memory, migration, and our ideas of home. He crafts his works using traditional Korean sewing techniques combined with 3-D modeling and mapping technologies. Suh sees these works as “suitcase homes,” so lightweight and portable they can be installed almost anywhere.  Link to exhibit site here.
