Do Ho Suh makes these colorful fabric architectural pieces that are spot on in scale in his new show “Home Within Home” at Leeum Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, Korea. Their transparency gives them this almost digital CAD feeling. I like to describe them as large soft sculptures. Much like the work of Shih Jindian, I captured his work for myself at last years 2011 Art Basel in Miami, but Suh’s art for this show is much grander in size.
