Do Ho Suh often tackles the question of individuality and identity through repetition. For drawings like Karma from 2015, Suh repeats the same human figure over and over again, creating a multi-layered, almost ornamental pattern. In the process these figures lose their distinct and recognisable shapes and forms – they almost seem to vanish into the horizon. An identity and the individual, Suh seems to say, is both one out of many and many in itself.
