Elaine W. Ho

Elaine W. HO works between the realms of time-based art, experimental publishing and urban practice, using multiple vocabularies to explore the micropolitics, subjectivities and alter-possibilities of an intimate, networked production. The act of describing takes on a number of forms—a kind of grammar, a documentation, a gesture, a biography—or an experiment in Beijing known as HomeShop. She is the initiator of the artist-run space, active from 2008-2013, and continues to ask questions about the sociopolitics of syntax, more recently via print, audio broadcast, and as co-conspirator with Display Distribute, a networked research platform investigating bottom-up organisation amidst global trade (2015-ongoing).

Her work—with several collaborative configurations under various denominations—has been previously presented on a boat named Eleonore, docked along the Danube River (Linz, 2016), Singapore Biennale (2019), Mediacity Biennale (Seoul, 2018), Hamburger Bahnhof Museum für Gegenwart (Berlin, 2017), the Power Station of Art (Shanghai, 2016), Guangdong Times Museum (Guangzhou, 2015), Spring Workshop (Hong Kong, 2015), Neue Nationalgalerie (Berlin, 2014), Tate Modern (London, 2014), and on various street corners, among other places. She likes to drink coffee and tea mixed together and is a frequent contributor at www.iwishicoulddescribeittoyoubetter.net.
