In what ways are personal memory, emotion and cognition expressed through the physicality of the body? Genetics has shown that certain childhood experiences leave permanent marks upon the victims’ genome by altering gene expression. Physical anthropology has long demonstrated that organs, teeth and bones record events such as disease and trauma. Therefore the physical body retains traces of memory at the tissue, cell and molecular levels. Ho-You’s work draws insights from these visceral observations and attempts to express how our identities are linked to the often mysterious complexity of our bodies.
