Artist Do Ho Suh is making people think about the precarious idea of home. His latest work is a powder blue gable roof cottage, the 18th permanent sculpture commissioned by the Stuart Collection at the University of California, San Diego.
Suh, who came to the United States from Seoul in 1991, had to physically and mentally readjust to his new surroundings. The feeling of being plucked out of the comfortable and familiar and lodged into a dizzying unfamiliar environment is what this installation-sculpture, “Fallen Star,” is all about.
