This Is One Of The Most Meaningful Monuments I've Ever Seen

March 14, 2016

Do Ho Suh was born in Seoul, Korea, in 1962. Best known for his intricate sculptures that defy conventional notions of scale and site-specificity, Suh draws attention to the ways viewers occupy and inhabit public space.

This sculpture in Brooklyn, New York, is called "Public Figures."

Suh said about this piece:

"Let's say if there's one statue at the plaza of a hero who helped or protected our country, there are hundreds of thousands of individuals who helped him and worked with him, and there's no recognition for them. So in my sculpture, 'Public Figures,' I had around six hundred small figures, twelve inches high, six different shapes, both male and female, of different ethnicities."
