Ho, Siu-Kee (b. 1964) obtained his BA degree in Fine Arts from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1989. After some years of artistic practice in Hong Kong, he furthered his study in U.S.A. and graduated with an MFA degree in Sculpture from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1995. In 2003, he received his Doctor of Fine Art degree from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University, Australia with the research topic of “Bodily Perception as a Means of Expression in Contemporary Art Practice”. Ho has participated in various prestigious exhibitions worldwide including the 23rd International Biennial of Sao Paulo in 1996 and the 49th Venice Biennial in 2001 as Official Hong Kong Representative. For his outstanding artistic achievement, Ho was included as an entry in the World Biographical Dictionary of Artists (Allgemeines Kunstlerlexikon, Die bildenden Kunstlerlexikon aller Zeiten und Volker) , Vol.73, Germany in 2011 and was awarded the Associate Membership of Royal British Society of Sculptors ARBS, London, UK in 2012.

Most of Ho Siu Kee’s artworks begin with the exploration of his own senses and bodily perception. They appear as self-portraitures through the visual presentation of his own body imagery employing different media, such as sculpture, installation, photography and video. The visual presentation materializes and projects the innate personal experience as means of artistic expression which is expected to make up the communication between the “Self” and the “Other”.

何兆基一九六四年生於香港,一九八九年畢業於香港中文大學藝術系,九十年代負笈美國鶴溪藝術學院修讀藝術碩士(主修雕塑),二零零三年以「當代藝術中的身體知覺」為研究課題獲澳洲皇家墨爾本理工大學頒授藝術博士,現為香港浸會大學視覺藝術院副教授及視覺藝術碩士課程總監。

何氏曾參與多個國際性展覽,包括代表香港參加第二十三屆聖保羅國際藝術雙年展及第四十九屆威尼斯雙年展,亦曾獲美國亞洲文化協會、意大利Civitella Ranieri Center及香港藝術發展局等機構頒發藝術獎助。何兆基的名字被收錄於德國出版的全球藝術家大辭典Allgemeines Kunstlerlexikon, Die bildenden Kunstlerlexikon aller Zeiten und Volker (2011年第七十三卷) ,於2012年更獲英國皇家雕塑家學會選為海外附屬會員。

何兆基的作品大多以自身的感官知覺開始,並透過不同的視覺媒介如雕塑、裝置、攝影及錄像等以自造像的形式呈現,將個人內在的知覺經驗物質化並向外投射,使之成為可被知覺的藝術表達方式。他認為,自身與他者或能藉此得以溝通。

浸大視覺藝術院何兆基博士 獲英國皇家雕塑家協會推薦成為附屬會員

香港浸會大學視覺藝術院副教授及視覺藝術碩士課程總監何兆基博士最近憑傑出的藝術作品,獲英國皇家雕塑家協會推薦成為附屬會員。每年,只有數名優秀的藝術家獲該會推薦為附屬會員。

何博士數月前向英國皇家雕塑家協會舉辦的一項國際比賽提交藝術作品。直至上月,他收到協會的回信,評審委員認為他的藝術創作十分出色,並建議何博士成為協會附屬會員。何博士對於獲邀成為附屬會員感到十分意外,他說﹕「評審委員認為我的創作水平已超出比賽的要求,我對他們的賞識表示感謝,並希望日後繼續為協會及藝術界作出貢獻。」

每年,全球的雕塑藝術家可向英國皇家雕塑家協會提交作品,出色的創作人可獲協會挑選成為會員。協會院士是最高級別的會員,其次是附屬會員。附屬會員經兩名院士提名,再經專責委員會審核可晉升為院士。

另外,何博士的名字最近亦收錄在德國出版的《全球藝術家傳記字典》(二零一一年十二月,第七十三冊)。字典收錄了全球自古到今重要的畫家、雕塑家、設計師、建築師、專業攝影師、書法家等多個領域的藝術家的資料。
