A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Do Hu Suh: 348 West 22nd Street

“I see life as a passageway, with no fixed beginning or destination,” the Korean artist Do Ho Suh said in 2017. “We tend to focus on the destination all the time and forget about the in-between spaces.” With sheets of colorful, transparent polyester placed upon fine steel frames, Suh recreates those transitory spaces—places he once called home in Seoul, Providence, London, and Berlin.

Memory and déjà vu. —E.C.
