South Ho Siu Nam

b. 1984, Hong Kong

South Ho Siu Nam graduated from the Social Work department at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2006. Ho’s artistic practice began with photography and has since evolved to the inclusion of painting, drawing and mixed media installations. His works encompass the wonders and helplessness of living, the spirituality of existence, as well as the socio-political awareness of Hong Kong.

Ho participated in institution exhibitions including “Works in Progress” of the CHINA 8 project (Museum Folkwang, Germany 2015) and “Basically. Forever” (Kiyaosato Museum of Photographic Arts, Japan, 2014). He was awarded the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Awards in 2009. In 2013, he co-founded 100 ft. PARK, a non-commercial art space dedicated to providing an open platform for exhibiting and sharing art. In 2017, Ho was commissioned to document the construction of Tai Kwun, a new institution for heritage and art opening in 2018.  A monograph titled Space and Energy of the project was published by the institution. His work is collected by the Burger Collection, Hong Kong Heritage Museum (Hong Kong), Legislative Council of Hong Kong (Hong Kong) and Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (Japan).

Ho currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
