South Korean 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.

Spanning three decades, from the 1990s to now, the artist’s first solo exhibition in the Southern Hemisphere presents emblematic works across a wide range of media that include large-scale installations, sculptures, drawings, printmaking, and video works.

Do Ho Suh’s extensive body of work is characterised by an ongoing meditation on notions of belonging, identity and home. Encompassing portraiture and architectural references, Suh’s works have a distinctive biographical dimension evoking the various spaces he has lived and worked in, including Seoul, New York, Berlin, and London.

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.

The Sydney-exclusive exhibition is curated by guest curator Rachel Kent, Chief Executive Officer, Bundanon Trust NSW, with MCA Associate Curator Megan Robson.

Do Ho Suh is presented as the 2022/2023 Sydney International Art Series.
