Alanna Ho at the Fifty Fifty Arts Collective

Alanna Ho is a contemporary composer and visual artist in Vancouver. Interested in various mediums, she uses an interdisciplinary approach to create audiovisual experiences. She experiments with collected sounds and discarded materials in her works. In her compositions, she explores the presence and awareness of the human body, in its natural and meditative state. Ho derives her interest of spontaneity and time-based works, from her frequent practice of painting large scale abstract works in an improvisational state. She is interested in the dialogue between the materials' natural tendencies, and its changes of character when married with another material. With a personal connection in meditation and peaceful practices, Ho instinctively develops reflective and free-flowing gestures in her works. In recent works, her performers undergo meditation and imagery exercises, to effectively enhance attentive listening and fluidity of the sounds they produce.

Opening reception: July 5 @ 7 pm
