About

Visitors will be able to walk within the installation Saturdays and Sundays during our regular public hours.

At a time of mass global migration, the loss of leaving one's native country and searching for a permanent home have become universal issues. One: Do Ho Suh features a single, large-scale work by Korean-born artist Do Ho Suh, whose work engages with migration and cultural displacement. The Perfect Home II is a full-scale re-creation of the artist’s former apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City and his home for 19 years. Visitors are invited to walk through the hand-sewn, translucent fabric replica, which includes details such as light fixtures, radiators, and even an intercom.

Drawing on a longing for home, feelings Suh initially experienced as an immigrant, the work highlights the important connections we make between physical places and memory. Currently based in London, Suh, like other globally acclaimed artists, lives a nomadic existence, traveling from city to city to execute commissions and participate in exhibitions. But having created sculptures that allow him “to carry my house with me,” he is at home wherever he is.

One: Do Ho Suh is curated by Eugenie Tsai, John and Barbara Vogelstein Senior Curator, Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum.

Leadership support for this exhibition is provided by Olivia Song and Scott Rofey and by Phillips.

Each exhibition in the One Brooklyn series focuses on an individual work chosen from our encyclopedic collection, revealing the many stories woven into a single work of art. One Brooklyn is made possible by a generous contribution from JPMorgan Chase & Co.
