Staircase

There’s a lot of depth and symbolism in artist Do-Ho Suh’s installations. Whether addressing the dynamic of personal space versus public space, or exploring the fine line between strength in numbers and homogeneity, Suh’s sculptures continually question the identity of the individual in today’s global society. I could spend hours trying to figure out what he is trying to say through his pieces. Suh was born in Seoul, Korea in 1962. After earning his BFA and MFA in Oriental Painting from Seoul National University, and fulfilling his term of mandatory service in the South Korean military, he relocated to the United States to continue his studies at the Rhode Island School of Design and Yale University. Suh represented Korea at the 2001 Venice Biennale. Cause & Effect
