Discover how the renowned Korean-born artist Do Ho Suh translates his architectural works into sublime two-dimensional compositions

A sculptor and installation artist, Korean-born Do Ho Suh (born 1962) is best known for his full-scale fabric works in which he meticulously reimagines the architectural space of his past homes and studios. Since collaborating with Singapore's STPI - Creative Workshop & Gallery in 2009, Suh has turned to print and paper as a new medium to channel and recreate these forms. The resulting Thread Drawings, developed using an innovative technique that employs thread as a sculptural material on handmade paper, represent an important breakthrough in Suh's repertoire. The artist's Gelatine Drawings extend from this technical approach to capture a range of dimensional domestic structures, objects and in-between spaces flattened on a single plane, rendered spectral, foldable and mobile. This book also documents Suh's pastel rubbings of interior spaces and everyday objects that disclose and memorialize details of his surroundings, as well as etchings, lithographic prints and cyanotypes.
