Loose Talk Conversations: Do Ho Suh

Big Stairs / Knowlton Hall
March 19, 2018 - 4:00pm

Do Ho Suh will be speaking on the Big Stairs at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, March 19 as part of the Knowlton School’s Loose Talk Conversations series. Suh (b. 1962, Seoul, Korea; lives and works in London and Seoul) works across various media, creating drawings, film and sculptural works that confront questions of home, physical space, displacement, memory, individuality and collectivity. He is best known for his fabric sculptures that reconstruct to scale his former homes in Korea, Rhode Island, Berlin, London and New York. Suh is interested in the malleability of space in both its physical and metaphorical forms, and examines how the body relates to, inhabits and interacts with that space. He is particularly interested in domestic space and the way the concept of home can be articulated through architecture that has a specific location, form, and history. For Suh, the spaces we inhabit also contain psychological energy, and in his work he makes visible those markers of memories, personal experiences and a sense of security, regardless of geographic location.

A screening of his film, “Fallen Star” will be shown at the Wexner Center at 7:00 p.m.


Loose Talk Conversations are a series of presentations and panel discussions on the Knowlton Hall Big Stairs by school faculty and guest speakers.
