Do-Ho Suh is a Korean artist who explores idividuality, collectivity, and anonymity through construction of site-specific installations like Floor. Consisting of 32 panels, the floor is supported by hundreds miniature figures; the multicolored men and women are working collectively with arms up to support the weight of the visitors. Do-Ho Suh explores the tension between collective action and individual identity. His work speaks to the individual viewers through its subtleness in scale and appearance. Originally on display in the Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York, which has hosted the artist multiple times since 2000, Floor is currently on display at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
