Conceptual artwork by Hong Kong’s Ho Siu-Kee

Back in the 90s, Hong Kong had a vibrant group of conceptually oriented artists producing still very contemporary work. One of them was Ho Siu-Kee who focused on the exploration of his own senses and bodily perception. Coming from a culture of Buddhist monks, he studied their austere attitude towards their own bodies and gestures and combined it with his own experiences and insights.

The result is a body of work almost exclusively oriented towards human perception, interaction and the disruption of traditional behavioral patterns. One example is Aureola No. 13, a sculpture to ‘explore the duality of the body – its limitation and liberation’, with the help of a wearable halo-shaped metal hoop.

The Hong Kong-based Pearl Lam galleries just honoured this exceptional work with the Déjà Disparu exhibition.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
