pencil on paper, 10 x15 cm

Ho Hang Yi was born in rural China in 1990 and moved to Hong Kong at the age of 8. Taking inspiration from her personal experiences, she condenses and reconstructs familiar and alien scenes from everyday life to portray her diasporic identity. Her works often depict the complex feelings of indifference, uncertainty, anxiety and attachment associated with her origin and current place of residence.

 

She received her BFA from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2015. Ho has exhibited in South Korea and Taiwan,as well as regularly in Hong Kong.
