Located on the ground floor of the London Mithraeum, Bloomberg SPACE aims to showcase the best in contemporary art whilst bringing fresh perspectives to the history of this unique site.

Our latest commission is Proposal for Sach’ŏnwang-sa, by internationally renowned artist, Do Ho Suh.

The commission is inspired by the resonance between the Roman Temple of Mithras, on which Bloomberg SPACE is situated, and the ancient Korean temple, Sach’ŏnwang-sa, built circa 670 AD. Suh’s large-scale sculpture offers a poetic reimagining of Sach’ŏnwang-sa, an emergency structure which, though shrouded in mystery, is known to have been made from ‘colourful silk’.

The exhibition invites audiences to consider one of ancient Korea’s most significant, but enigmatic, archaeological sites while examining the concept of home and how it is formed. For Suh, the spaces we inhabit contain psychological energy, and his work makes visible markers of memory, personal experience and the need for sanctuary.
