Supporting Artists Who Challenge the World
Robert Walters Korea is supporting the Seoul Museum of Art's project to exhibit the work of global artists.
As the first phase of this project, Robert Walters Korea is sponsoring the exhibition "Do Ho Suh and Children: Artland" by Do Ho Suh, a Korean sculptor and illustration artist based in London, UK. (Exhibition period: July 26, 2022 - March 13, 2023)
About Do Ho Suh
Suh works across various media to confront questions of memory, physical space and displacement. Suh is interested in the malleability of space in both its physical and metaphorical forms, and examines how the body relates to, inhabits, and interacts with that space. His work is included in collections worldwide including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles (LACMA); National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul and Tate, London. He was the recipient of the 2017 Ho-Am Prize and represented Korea at the Venice Biennale in 2001, and at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2018.
"Do Ho Suh and Children: Artland"
Suh's first collaborative exhibition invites children and young people to participate in the making of an installation. The exhibition features a complex and fantastical ecosystem called Artland, which is inhabited by diverse species of animals and plants, while its unique climate and soil result in different growth cycles and conditions for its flora and fauna to those on Earth. Suh encourages visitors to add new elements to this alternative ecosystem.
