PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
As part of his upcoming exhibition at Lehmann Maupin, Korean artist Do-Ho Suh (previously here and here) has constructed detailed, leightweight sculptures of his oven, toilet, bathtub and other fixtures found in his Manhattan apartment out of polyester fabric. The translucent nature of each piece gives the appearance of a CAD drawing or digital wireframe, but in fact each piece is a near weightless, full-size replica down to the stitched typography of the brand label. Titled Specimen Series, the exhibition will run November 14, 2013 through January 24, 2014 at Lehmann Maupin in Hong Kong.
