For an upcoming exhibition, Korean sculpture and installation artist Do Ho Suh created polyester fabric sculptures of appliances and fixtures found in his Manhattan apartment.

For Specimen Series, the artist created full-size replicas of objects like a toilet, tub, radiator, stove, medicine cabinet, a refrigerator, and more. The lightweight material used to create the pieces make them appear like wire frames or conceptual drawings.

The series will be exhibited at Lehmann Maupin in Hong Kong from November 14th through January 24th.
