South Ho Siu Nam

b. 1984, Hong Kong

South Ho Siu Nam graduated from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2006. Ho’s artistic practice began with photography and has since evolved to the inclusion of performance, 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 group exhibitions in various international institutions, including LOOK/17 Liverpool International Photography Festival (Victoria Gallery and Museum, Liverpool, UK, 2017); “Breathing Space” (Asia Society, Hong Kong, 2017); “Works in Progress” of the CHINA 8 project (Museum Folkwang, Germany, 2015); and “Basically. Forever” (Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts, Japan, 2014). In 2009, he was awarded the Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Awards. His work is collected by the Burger Collection, Hong Kong Heritage Museum (Hong Kong), Legislative Council of Hong Kong (Hong Kong), Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (Japan) and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (USA). Publications by the artist include Every Daily (2013), good day good night (2015), and Space and Energy (commissioned by Tai Kwun, 2017).

Ho currently lives and works in Hong Kong. In 2013, he co-founded 100 ft. PARK, a non-commercial art space dedicated to providing an open platform for exhibiting and sharing art.
