Do-Ho Suh: What kinds of ideas on identity and stereotype is he exploring in his work? What are some of the other themes he is dealing with and how does this relate to the idea of “place”? How might this art connect with some of the themes we have been exploring in this course so far? Do-Ho Suh is dealing with a sense of “displacement” how does he address this in his work? Is this something that is cross-culturally relatable? What do you think of Suh’s work? Be specific with your answer through the use of examples. Do-Ho Suh came from Korea and mentions his time in the military. Many countries force its citizens, mostly men, to do a term in the army once in their lives. This seemed to have a negative, but inspirational effect on Suh which he used in his many art forms. He explores the ideas of similarity in a culture and country throw his compiled yearbook photos. After synchronizing them together he notices the similarity between all of them and describes that he can see himself, even though it has many of his peers with him. This adds to the origin of many stereotypes and that they were once built on a notion whether it be true or false. He deals with the warrior theme and the militaristic values he gained form the Korean Army and shows that through his tightly packed arts, which could represent his closeness with the other army soldiers and living in Seoul.
