Hub-2, Breakfast Corner, 260-7, Sungbook-Dong, Sungboo-Ku, Seoul, Korea is a meticulous recreation in gauzy polyester of a breakfast nook in a Seoul apartment where Do Ho Suh once lived. Since the beginning of his career in the 1990s, Suh has lived an itinerant existence, continuously traveling across continents and establishing only ever temporary home bases in Korea, Rhode Island, Berlin, London, and New York. This work is part of a much larger series of installations that in part trace these journeys by recreating spaces from the artist’s various “homes.” For Suh, the project offers precisely the means to address what the idea of “home” entails in an increasingly globalized world accompanied by constant and even destabilizing shifts in our senses of self, place, and belonging.
