Doorknob/Bathroom is a full-scale reproduction of the doorknob of the artist's Chelsea apartment. Do-Ho Suh often works with semi-transparent fabrics that he delicately sews together to represent - and defy - existing and functional spaces and objects. Doorknob/Bathroom exists as an isolated architectural element, separated from Suh's apartment and therefore abandons its ties with a specific place and becomes a loose abstraction with a new-found flexibility and transparency. Do-Ho Suh represented Korea at the Venice Bienniale in 2001 and maintains an active international exhibition schedule. His work is represented in a number of major museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
