Artworks / Writings
Ho, Siu-Kee (b. 1964) obtained his BA degree in Fine Arts at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1989. He graduated from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Michigan, USA, with an MFA degree majoring in Sculpture in 1995 and earned his Doctor of Fine Art degree from RMIT University, Australia in 2003. He is currently the Associate Professor in the Visual Arts Academy of Hong Kong Baptist University.
Ho has participated in various prestigious exhibitions worldwide including the 23rd International Biennial of Sao Paulo in 1996 and the 49th Venice Biennial in 2001. He has received various awards such as Civitella Ranieri Fellowship (Civitella Ranieri Center, Italy); Starr Foundation Fellowship (Asian Cultural Council, New York) and Fellowship for Artistic Development (Hong Kong Arts Development Council).
Most of Ho Siu Kee’s artworks begin with the exploration of his own senses and bodily perception. They appear as self-portraitures through the visual presentation of his own body imagery employing different media, such as sculpture, installation, photography and video. The visual presentation materializes and projects the innate personal experience as means of artistic expression which is expected to make up the communication between the “Self” and the “Other”.
