Isa Ho (Ho Meng-Chuan)
Born in 1977 Keelung, Taiwan
Isa Ho has grown up in a Taiwan very different from that of her grandmothers, and the seismic changes in women’s lives and roles are a central theme of her work. Today women are free to work, live independently, and marry whomever they choose. Yet they remain under pressure to uphold the Confucian idea that a good woman stays demurely at home under the care of her father or husband.
