Do-Ho Suh’s Home within a Home

For more views from inside Do-Ho Suh’s “Home Within Home Within Home Within Home Within Home,” browse the #dohosuh and #서도호 hashtags and see the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (국립현대미술관 서울관) location page.

In Seoul, South Korea’s National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, visitors are finding a peculiar, life-size home nested within the walls of another home.

The full name of the 12x15m (40x49ft) giant installation is "Home Within Home Within Home Within Home Within Home" (집 속의 집 속의 집 속의 집 속의 집), and it’s the largest work by Korean artist Do-Ho Suh (서도호) to date. Made to scale out of layers of translucent blue silk, the two houses are exact replicas of residences the artist lived in as a child in Korea and in the United States. The effect is a pair of disorienting, 3D blueprints that visitors to the Seoul Box area of the museum can walk through until 14 May 2014.
