Home Away From Home

South Korean visual artist Do Ho Suh is a man in transit, always on the road, all year round oscillating between East and West. Where do I feel at home, who am I? These questions lie at the root of his work, questions that arise from his obsession with houses. Suh himself has several permanent homes: in London, in New York, and in Seoul. He grew up in the latter city, in one of the palatial buildings on his parents' grounds. He creates meticulous replicas of his past homes – architectural sculptures of transparent fabrics or rubbed paper in bright colours, tactile and elusive, virtually weightless and dreamily translucent.

Filmmaker Marjoleine Boonstra (Kurai Kurai, The Miracle of The Little Prince) presents the inspiring world of his parents and shows Suh passionately recreating his homes – it is his way of making the vulnerability of our relationship with our past, with our house and home, tangible.

Preceded by a filmed introduction by curator Allegra Pesenti to the work of Do Ho Suh, recorded in Suh's Rubbing/Loving project in New York.

Director Marjoleine Boonstra will be present for a Q&A.
