HO Chin Ying

Ho Chin Ying’s works seek a “voice” different to most of the public voice. She seeks common ground while preserving differences. Compared to the common point of view, she prefers to be optimistic. Making a difference in the world will help us solve the problems and make improvement in our life. In comparison with the visual image, materials are what she considers more important. Experiment and testing workable material, for her, is not only the process of creating works, but also a chance to explore herself. Without spoken language, the work becomes a storyteller to the audience.

In her works, she intends to give a message to the audience: we are living together but we are different and special to each other. At the same time, she tries to find out who she is in her work.

求同存異——是何展瑩嘗試在她的作品中向觀眾所傳達的訊息。與其人云亦云,倒不如轉換角度去看待事物,可能更有助解決問題。

對何展瑩而言,材料的運用不只是代表她的創作過程,亦是一個機會——發現不一樣的自己,因此她嘗試從作品中找尋自己,反覆思考:究竟「我是誰?」
作品不需要語言文字的協助,因為其作品就是一個說書人,向觀眾道出它的故事。

“The bird fights its way out of the egg. The egg is the world. Who would be born must first destroy a world”. And you? Would you leave this originated “egg”? Or are you the same as me doing the powerless struggle in the “egg”?

「鳥兒奮力從蛋中出來。蛋就是牠的世界。需要成長,就必先要破壞世界。」那你呢?願意離開你本來的「蛋」嗎?還是你跟我一樣,只是在「蛋」中作無力的掙扎?
