Do Ho Suh: Fallen Star

Explore notions of home with a Stuart Collection art installation that looks like a small cottage has been picked up, as if by some mysterious force, and “landed” atop Jacobs Hall. The remarkable Fallen Star by Korean artist Do Ho Suh sits crookedly on a corner of the building, cantilevered out over the ground seven stories below, and features a lush garden and panoramic views of the UC San Diego campus and beyond. Inside, its incongruent angles cause a sense of dislocation—some would say vertigo—and prompt ideas about cultural displacement and one’s perception of space while the visitor physically and mentally accommodates a new perspective of the world.

Enjoy this 15 minute immersive art experience.

Created by Do Ho Suh
Commissioned by the Stuart Collection

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? Born in Korea, Do Ho Suh attended Seoul National University. He earned a BFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA in sculpture from Yale University. His works are in museum collections around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art; Whitney Museum of American Art; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Walker Art Center; Artsonje Center, Seoul; and the Mori Art Museum, Tokyo. He represented Korea at the Venice Biennale in 2001. Suh lives and works in New York, London and Seoul.
