The piece is in the permanent collection of several American museums. The artist Do Ho Suh, Korean born 1962, is renowned for his site-specific installations that manipulate scale to emphasize the malleability of space and examine the issues of cultural identity and anonymity. Suhs training in traditional Oriental painting and his mandatory service in the South Korean military have significantly influenced his work.
In his 2003 work Some/One, for example, thousands of military dog tags are amassed in an interlocking pattern to form the larger silhouette of a traditional Korean robe, illustrating the way individuals are used as building blocks to shape a collective whole. Do Ho Suhs work explores the relationship between the personal and the collective, particularly in the context of increasing internationalization. For this bowl, Suh has made an impression of his own outstretched hands in its base.
The bowl becomes a symbol of the gift of his creativity, an offering of something deeply personal into the social realm.
