Artist Do Ho Suh’s sculptural works confront questions of home, physical space, displacement, memory, individuality, and collectivity. In the exhibition Specimens, Suh replicates details of his own domestic existence—such as light switches, door handles, electric panels, and appliances taken from his living space—in drawings and translucent material. In this talk, Suh will provide insights into his artistic practice, as well as discussing the influences of home, and his displacement from home, on his work.
