Still from South Ho, How far are we from the sea, 2017-2018, video.
Nominated by Wendy Wo, CHAT: Centre for Heritage, Arts and Textile.
Ho Siu Nam (South Ho)’s artistic practice began with photography and has since evolved to the inclusion of performance, drawing and mixed media installations. Siu Nam’s (HK) works encompass the wonders and helplessness of living, the spirituality of existence, as well as the socio-political awareness of Hong Kong.
How far are we from the sea reflects on the geographical construction of Hong Kong; particularly the material-intensive processes of land reclamation that turn bodies of water into dry land.
