Artist in Residence: Karilynn Ming Ho


Trinity Square Video would like to welcome Karilynn Ming Ho for a production residency at Trinity Square Video. She will be working on a new work that explores the phantoms that linger and haunt our collective memory; from phantom limbs & phantom pain, to unrequited love, self-help, simulations and reflections, missing airliner MH370 and the slow dismantling of the political left. Ming Ho’s work has previously been shown at Trinity in this year’s Love After Materialism screening.
