◆ 展覽介紹 ｜ Exhibition Introduction
“renaissance of its Ashes” this original work, embeds a macroscopic scale microscopically and specifically into the performer’s own body to represent the spiritual landscape of the connection between the people and the divine. However, due to the distance from audience, performances in typical theater are unable to accurately deliver the microscopic scale of the sense of rituals and spiritual landscapes. Therefore, “The Scenery of Flesh and Blood” is able to represent better spiritual and ritual effects. Through the effects of scaling up the dancer’s body and close contacts with the avatar, “The Scenery of Flesh and Blood” can represent not only the surreal wonders of flesh and blood, but also allow participants to experience the spiritualized landscape.

In 1995, HO was invited to be the commission choreographer at the American Dance Festival.
Hsiao-Mei HO’s early works were inspired by Taiwanese folk culture, exploring the cultural image of the Taiwanese and reflecting on the current social situation, using art as social commentary. Her works were often thought-provoking, reflecting Taiwan’s turbulence and diversity, with its underlying silence and intensity. At the present stage, she is famous for using strong and unique visual effect on stage to present human inner thoughts in modern society.
