korean artist do ho suh presents his first solo exhibition at lehmann maupin gallery in hong kong, a site-specific installation of sculptural artworks. the collection is a continuation of his new york specimen series, which designboom previously covered here, and consists of six life-size replicas of various household appliances from his personal apartment on west 22nd street in manhattan. a bathtub, toilet, medicine cabinet, radiator, kitchen stove and refrigerator are all structurally rendered in full-scale, using the artist’s signature polyester material. the near-translucent fabrications reveal each item’s inner workings, exposing the technical, semi-architectural framework of their build. the almost weightless wire structures are an extension of his study of themes surrounding cultural displacement, the establishment of relationships within new environments, and memories as both physical and metaphorical manifestations.
