The Do Ho Suh Karma exhibit has been made on behalf of the critically acclaimed Korean artist. Suh's Cause & Effect installation drew quite a bit of attention to his portfolio, and he has here focused again on the ties between human relationships.

Karma features a series of male structures that blind each other with their hands. As they unfold into one another in a vertical manner, Suh points to the connection between the paths followed by multiple generations, blindly succeeding those of the past. There is however much room for interpretation here as this is only one take on Karma. In any case, the piece is certainly provocative and emotionally stirring for anyone who comes into contact with the display.
