Rania Ho is a multidisciplinary artist working in sculpture, drawing, installation and performance. She often employs a humorous, unexpected approach to everyday objects and situations in her works. Ho studied interactive design and her work often considers how ‘users’ respond to their surrounding environment. Ho’s works can be seen to resemble games, however they often carry socially critical observations that are produced or reproduced through the performative action of the viewer. Her un-monumental works often employ absurdity as a means of interrogating broader social or cultural concerns.
