Artist / Ho Sin Tung

Ho Sin Tung cobosocial2.jpg

Ho Sin Tung was born and currently living in Hong Kong. She graduated from the Fine Arts Department in Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2018. Ho imagines and participates in the world through researching it. She regards research as a method to lost oneself steadily. Navigating through the texts and materials, Ho encounters punctum that haunts her. Those could not be named thus transformed into works. This is a way to live with it. Ho has a penfriend who describes her as such: "Ho Sin Tung regards the dead as the living. Objects, events, knowledge gain the status of the living in her world. They have their own face and so dignified that they cannot be categorized."


Apart from drawing, installation and video, Ho also regards writing as one of her essential practice. Her translations, reviews and fictions are published in various medias and literal magazines. She is one of the co-founder of alternative space POWWOW - it is a base for cultural practitioners from all fields to exercise, play, mingle, and learn to care for both their body and mind. It seeks to bring various artistic communities together through sports (especially martial arts) and fun, and to become an agglomerating point for creative spirits to collide in informal yet structured frameworks. Without emphasising on the production or exhibition aspects of art, it will be a playground for creativity to ferment and take shape without being driven by ‘objectives’ or directed by the capitalistic impulses of productivity and efficiency.
