The latest exhibition showing at Victoria Miro is Passage/s by Do Ho Suh. Suh meticulously constructs proportionally exact replicas of everyday items and habitable structures. These works are made from translucent, coloured polyester fabric. The exhibit spans two gallery spaces and just the sheer scale is impressive. The sculptures themselves explore the concept of the home and the relationship between an entity and space.
Habitation is a common theme for Suh’s work and the Korean has been quoted in a recent interview with the Financial Times that, “my work is about questioning the borders, moving in and out freely.” During these political times, visiting this exhibition to question what means home and how displacement affects us seems extremely apt. One point to those thinking of going, it was busy on a Friday at 11:20AM so expect some queues!
