Life-Size Fabric Model of a House Within a House by Do Ho Suh

Home Within Home by Do Ho Suh

Korean artist Do Ho Suh has created a life-size fabric replica of a three-story American house, inside of which is a replica of a traditional Korean home, for his large scale installation “Home Within Home Within Home Within Home Within Home.” Each replica represents a home Suh has lived in—the 39-foot-tall American house was Suh’s first residence in the United States (in Providence, Rhode Island), and the smaller structure is his family’s house in Seoul. The installation is on display at the Seoul branch of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea through May 11, 2014. For more of Suh’s work, see our previous posts.
