Artist Statement

Born in Taipei, educated in Paris, and currently living in New York City, Hsin-Yi HO received her diploma from École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2007, has had exhibitions internationally including France, the US, Japan, korea, Malaysia and Taiwan. She also works as a documentary filmmaker.

Hsin-Yi HO’s creation is a perceptual kind of autobiography. The artworks feature multiple screens synchronized with film projections. The films can be seen as “personal documentaries”: a collection of moments, memories, and emotions through the artist’s lens, shaped by her multicultural background and education. She takes her unique perspective, cultivated by time spent growing up in Taiwan and her education in Paris, and expresses the intimate relationship with her family members.

Apart from her video presentation, creative self-description and photographs are also significant parts of her work. She loves sharing her experiences with people and always feels happy when the audience feels engaged at her intertextual works. Through the interactions that people have with her work, life becomes a kind of creation as well as creation endowing the meaning of life. Creation , for her, is not only art, but a ritual of voicing love.
