Currently showing at Lehmann Maupin is Home Within Home, the latest exhibition by Korean artist Do Ho Suh. The show is centered around two amazing sculptural installations that each deal with the artist’s feelings of cultural displacement stemming from the time when he moved from Korea to the United States to study art. Suh physically represents the culture clash he experienced in the piece entitled Home Within Home: an incredibly detailed dollhouse version of his student home in Providence, RI, that has been partially destroyed by a replica of his Korean home dropped from the sky. The similarly themed Fallen Star 1/5 depicts the two houses in glowing green resin, one inside the other and separated into quarters, allowing viewers to walk through. Household items created out of translucent fabric and conceptual drawings are also included in this must-see show.
Take a look at all the images, after the jump.
