Über Echo Ho:
Echo Ho was born in1973 in Beijing, China. She started her art education at age 15, where she did painting for 5 years. In 1994, she moved to Hong Kong and studied Film and Television at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts. In the same period, she began to do art exhibitions and founded „Art Party“ with other young artists in HongKong. She very much liked to experiment with different artstic disciplines like painting, installation, performance, literature.
From 1996 on, she started to create single-channel video, aesthetic on the surface, but with a concealed subversion that expressed her animadversion and disbelieve in the politic situation in China; especially after her first-hand experience of the 1989 massacre and later the hand-over of HongKong.
From 1998 on, she studied Media Arts at the Media Art Academy Cologne, where she graduated in 2003. This time she is not only doing video installations, but also sound-scape composition and combines them to make objects that explore the creation of meaning through filmic plus acoustic representation, and analyze mass media's hold on our perceptions of personal identity.
Now she lives as an independent artist in Colonge.
