The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA Australia) has announced that they will play host to South Korean-born, London-based artist Do Ho Suh as part of the Sydney International Art Series.
Do Ho Suh at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia will be the first large-scale solo exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere for the artist. Do Ho Suh is known for his large-scale sculptures and architectural installations, which address the often complex relationships between the body, memory and space.
This exhibition is a major survey spanning three decades, from the 1990s to the present, and represents one of Suh’s most comprehensive projects to date. The exhibition is Suh’s first solo exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere and will present emblematic works across a wide range of media that include large-scale installations, sculptures, drawings, printmaking, models, and video works.
Do Ho Suh’s extensive body of work is characterised by an ongoing meditation on notions of belonging, identity and home.
Scale is central to Suh’s artworks, which vary from small, singular household objects – door handles, plugs and switches, light bulbs – through to full scale replicas of the domestic spaces and studios he has inhabited over the course of his life. Realised in diverse materials, from steel military ‘dog tags’ to fabric, these intimate and evocative artworks can be walked around, through and within.
