Ho Sin Tung

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 this: “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.” Ho was born in Hong Kong, and currently living and working there.

Preferring to work on a small scale and favouring pencil and graphite on paper above other media, HO Sin Tung gives visual expression to her intentional misreading of all aspects of the cinema, not only films themselves but the buildings in which they are shown, posters and other ephemera. Drawing from her interest in films and literature, her work also reveals her familiarity with a wide range of twentieth century visual art to which she refers in her tongue-in-cheek homages to the “movies.”
