Published - Do-ho Suh @ STPI

Back in 2003 at the International Istanbul Biennial, the Korean artist Do-Ho Suh presented one of his large-scale fabric installations ‘‘Staircase (Installation for Poetic Justice),’’ a red ethereal fabric staircase suspended from the ceiling and running through two floors without quite reaching the ground. The artist is now revisiting the idea on a smaller scale and in a different medium. Working in residency at the Singapore Tyler Print Institute, Mr. Suh is creating a staircase in red threads laid over paper pulp. I met him recently and wrote this story for the IHT which briefly traces his career. I just love his work, and some of the prints at STPI are really beautiful.
