sewn house


This made me look: The childhood home of Korean artist Do-ho Suh, sewn in nylon. It’s an exhibit from two years ago, in Providence, Rhode Island.

His immigration to the U.S. produced a disorientation that the artist describes as “transcultural displacement,” a feeling of being neither here nor there. “I don’t really get homesick, but I’ve noticed that I have a longing for this particular space and I want to recreate that space or bring that space wherever I go.”
