Image courtesy of Do-Ho Suh
I saw the work of Do-Ho Suh at the Mori Art Museum. Specifically, I saw the work above. Although, the work was right-side up and hanging about a foot off the ground. It is hard to tell in the picture, but the arch above is stitched together with a see-through material. The size of the work coupled with the intricate stitching makes for a piece that is fascinating to look at. You want to reach your hands out and touch the fabric and examine the way it is pieced together. As I was looking on the Internet to find this image, I was really awestruck by his work. While he has other work similar to this, he has many other styles. Much of it makes use of the power of scale. Plus, it is meticulously detailed and seems to show a lot of forethought. Sometimes a larger scale can just make something more atrocious, but Do-Ho Suh uses it in a way that somehow makes elegant work look even more elegant. Check out more of his work here.
