Joyce Ho received her M.A. in studio arts from the University of Iowa. She is an interdisciplinary artist, focusing specifically on painting, sculpture, and theater. Ho has worked as a script writer and theatre director. She works across diverse mediums from painting, video, to installation. With an illusion rich in light and shadow, the artistic conception aims to integrate the deconstructed movements and fragmented slices of daily routines. As such, the artist endeavors, whether in painting, installation or video, to convey an intimate, yet alienated tensions between human beings and reality. The singularly intensive creation simultaneously captivates and confronts viewers, which almost renders a quotidian moment into a piece of landscape or a ritual. Ho has exhibited internationally, including Noire Lumière, How Art Museum, Shanghai, China (2020); Yokohama Triennale: Afterglow, Yokohama Museum of Art, Yokohama, Japan (2020); Meditations in an Emergency, UCCA Center for Contemporary Art, Beijing, China (2020); NO ON: Joyce Ho Solo Exhibition, TKG+, Taipei, Taiwan (2019); 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia (2018); Inhabiting the World, Busan Biennale, Busan Museum of Art, Korea (2014); and Everyday Life — Asian Art Biennale, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, Taiwan (2013).
