Jennifer Chia-Ling Ho
July – September 2021
Jennifer Chia-ling Ho (何珈寧) is a Taiwanese artist based in Brooklyn, New York who uses sculpture, installation, and photography to explore the power and limitation of language, presentation, and research methodology, and how they alter the maker-viewer relationship. Born in Taiwan and now a resident of the US, she responds to this linguistic and cultural displacement, and interrogates the textual history that is based in the Western context. Ho’s work reveals the invisible systems that have mediated the way we think, act, or look at the world and asks how we can reconstruct and decentralize our cultural spaces to include those who have been overlooked.
Ho received her MFA in Sculpture from Pratt Institute, New York. In 2019, She co-founded We Narrate Us, a curatorial collective that aims to develop expanded methods of discussing the complexities of Asian identity. Ho is the recipient of the National Culture and Arts Foundation of Taiwan-International Exchange fellowship, Pratt MFA merit award, Graduate Student Education Fund, and Stutzman Family Foundation Fellowship. Her work has been shown in Super Dutchess Gallery, Deanna Evans Projects, and Inna Art Space in New York and Songshan Cultural and Creative Park and Onfoto Studio in Taipei, Taiwan. She is attending Vermont Studio Center Residency in 2022. This residency is supported by Taiwan Academy Los Angeles, and the Ministry of Culture, Taiwan.
