The eponymous Do Ho Suh exhibition is currently on show at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art in Madison, Wisconsin. The multi-part installation show explores large form architectural fabric sculptures, documentary films, illuminated sculptures, and works on paper. The centerpiece of the show is a full-scale replica of the South Korean artist’s New York City apartment and studio made completely from translucent colored fabric. Other pieces include selections from Suh’s Specimen Series, comprising of typical domestic appliances reproduced in diaphanous fabric, and displayed in lit plexiglass boxes. Visitors can also view Suh’s 2012 Secret Garden–1, a 1:16 scale model and animation of Suh’s Korean home mounted on the back of a flatbed truck. Do Ho Suh is organized by The Contemporary Austin with additional support by Lehmann Maupin Gallery.
