Katie Ho's artworks narrate fragments of stories that can be seen as individually complete, but when assembled together construct a more complex, multifaceted experience. They allow for connections across images and forms to show an idiosyncratic view of imaginative, subjective and real world observations; a view of narrated stories which are imaginative, humorous and most importantly, compassionate and deeply human.
Ho has an MFA from RMIT, Australia and has exhibited in Australia, Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan. She has had residencies in Korea (2015) and Taiwan (2016), and was a finalist in the 2016 Austronesian International Arts Award, Taiwan. She has also designed stage sets for productions at Kwai Tsing Black Box Theatre, HK, and McAuley Studio, Hong Kong Arts Centre.
