Family Cuddle, 2023

Lithograph on Fabriano paper

8.3 x 11.7 inches

Edition of 100


Family Cuddle is a rare lithograph by Do Ho Suh. Crafted in collaboration with Red Breast Editions in London, Family Cuddle draws on a motif that Suh has returned to repeatedly in recent years through the mediums of watercolor, drawing and stitched thread. The image sees four forms combine in a tender embrace, their strength deriving from their independent shapes and color sources as much as their coalescing. This portrait draws on Suh’s career-long exploration of connectivity and the means by which family– intergenerational as well as chosen– forms and supports how we grow. The deftness of each line drawing evokes one of Suh’s most enduring concerns; his interest in transportability and the notion that ‘home is what we carry with us’. The shape of this particular drawing relates to a practice the artist and his young family committed to during the lockdown period, whereby they would gather together and see which positions facilitated the closest, most reassuring, embrace at a time of limited human connection.


Do Ho Suh, (b. 1962, Seoul, Korea; lives and works in London) works across various media, creating drawings, film, and sculptural works that confront questions of home, physical space, displacement, memory, individuality, and collectivity. Suh is best known for his fabric sculptures that reconstruct to scale his former homes in Korea, Rhode Island, Berlin, London, and New York. Notably, he represented Korea at the 49th Venice Biennale in 2001, an event that underscored his global prominence. In recognition of his exceptional contributions, Suh was honored with the Ho-Am Prize in the Arts in 2017.
