Unfortunately, no one is able to live in the apartment, however, artist Do Ho Suh has created a fabric new york apartment series for curious viewers and art buffs. The South Korean Artist presents his multipart installation for The Contemporary Austin. From September 20, 2014 – January 11, 2015, the exhibit features apartments made from polyester fabric and stainless steel tubes.

The series reflects Do Ho Suh’s childhood and past experiences while highlighting the questionable boundary between public and private space. In addition, the space suggests notions of global identity, space, nomadism, memory, and displacement. I think the artwork would have a wider impact on the viewer if they were able to live inside the apartment for a day. This experience would help the person understand Suh’s intentions and emotions behind the artwork.
