This event has ended.
Suh Do Ho (born 1962) is one of South Korea’s leading artists and has been active on the international stage since the 1990s. Alongside his well-known installations recreating existing spaces in translucent fabric, Suh also creates a diverse range of works that explore identity in the context of relations between the individual and the collective, an example of which is “Cause & Effect.” This work, in which the whole is made up of vast numbers of tiny bodies, hints at our existence, which is realized through our relationship with our surroundings, and space.
Po Po (born 1957) has been a leading figure in conceptual art in Myanmar since the 1980s. In particular, during the period of military rule that continued from the 1960s, when contact with the outside world was limited, he obtained a thorough grasp of philosophy and contemporary art by self-education, with his practice evolving from two-dimensional works to sculptures and installations.
