PORTAL by Do Ho Suh

韓国生まれのアーティスト、ス・ドホ(Do Ho Suh)の作品集。本書は、韓国の古代門の型から作られた 「不可能」な彫刻の驚くべき旅路を紹介する一冊。2006年、ロンドンを拠点に活動する作者は、韓国の伝統的な門の型をアクリルレジンで鋳造し、「無から何かを作り出す」という一見不可能なプロジェクトに取り組み始めた。本作「Portal」は、10年近くかけて完成し、21世紀における作家と美術館の役割、東洋と西洋の関係についての作者の考えを根底から変える場となった。


In 2006, London-based Korean artist Do Ho Suh (born 1962) began work on a seemingly impossible project—to “make something out of nothing,” casting the negative form of a traditional Korean gate in solid acrylic resin. Portal would take nearly a decade to complete, and would provide the site for fundamental developments in Suh’s thinking on the role of both artist and museum in the 21st century, as well as the relationship between East and West.

This volume tells the epic story of that process through those who made it possible. Through color illustrations and texts, it provides unique access to the typically veiled fabrication process: the process of scanning, modelling, and constructing a nine-ton sculpture that would appear as if it was not there, a “living ghost image” cast from negative space.
