Do Ho Suh’s work explores the notions of home, cultural displacement, one’s perception of space and how one builds a memory of it. What is home, after all? A place? An idea? A sentiment? A memory?
These explorations grew out of Suh’s experience when he arrived in the U.S. in the early 90’s to study at the Rhode Island School of Design.

About the Stuart Collection
The Stuart Collection is unique among universities in the United States, given its scope and approach to commissioning contemporary sculpture. It is distinguished from a traditional sculpture garden by its site-specific nature. Many of the installations are fused to university buildings and integrated into the landscape itself. Great care is taken to incorporate the university’s long- and short-range plans while maintaining the integrity of the art and providing provocative, thoughtful and carefully considered additions to the fabric of campus life.
