Astounding Fabric Reproduction of a Three-Storey Townhouse by Do Ho Suh

South Korean artist Do Hu Suh has created an amazing transparent fabric reproduction of a three-storey townhouse currently being featured in an exhibit at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, Korea. Dubbed as ‘home within home within home within home within home’, the structure is a massive and sculptural space constructed from silk medium. It was inspired by the first home of the artist in Rhode Island, USA, which is a replica of a traditional Korean style house. The structure hangs from the ceiling as it floats between the multi-layered panels of semi-opaque, jade-colored textiles. The exhibit is open for viewing until the 11th of May 2014.
