Now lives and works in Taipei

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 theatre. Ho has worked as a script writer and theatre director since 2010.

She works across diverse mediums from painting, video, to installation. By integrating the deconstruction of movements and fragmentation of daily rituals with rich and illusory light and shadow, the artist demonstrates the intimate and isolating tensions between people and reality. The artist’s unique and powerful work simultaneously captivates her viewers while keeping them in a state of confrontation, rendering the quotidian action depicted in her work as a momentary ritual.

Ho has exhibited internationally, including 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 (2013).
