Brooklyn Museum is presenting an exhibition One: Do Ho Suh through January 27, 2019.
Have you ever lived away from your native ‘Home’? I have been living in New York City for over four years after leaving Seoul, South Korea in 2014. I sometimes feel that I don’t belong anywhere. I’ve been trying to find my ‘Home’ in both, a foreign country and even in Seoul, a place I always thought was not going to live for good. It’s strange to have memories of Seoul, where I lived almost my life, feel hazy and faint.
Living in another country, for me, feels like floating above the ground. While experiencing One: Do Ho Suh, it seemed to me that the artist is on the same page as me.
When I look at works of a South Korean artist, Do Ho Suh, I empathize with his works. His translucent and buoyant installations visually deliver his subject matter, a search for permanent home. The light texture of his art shows the nature of migration and cultural displacement as a foreigner.
If you have searched for a permanent ‘Home’, would you describe your feelings as the way this artist does?
