Born in 1979. Graduated with a Master Degree from Graduate Institute of Plastic Arts and Ph.D. from Doctoral Program in Art Creation and Theory in Tainan National University of the Arts. Selected for “The 14th Taoyuan Contemporary Art Award”, "Taipei Arts Award", "S-An Arts Award" and attained the “The National Culture and Arts Foundation -- Award of Creation of Arts", she was also artist-in residence in Cité Internationale des Arts Paris, granted by Cultural Affairs of Taiwan. Her works were owned by a number of public and private collectors, such as White Rabbit Gallery in Australia, National Taiwan Art Museum and Art Bank, Taiwan.

Through interplay of images of body and languages, her previous works often create an overtone of perception. In her early works A Mind of Skin Touch(2005) and Condition#2(2004), Kuo tends to capture fragments of daily life from a microcosmic view. Using human body as media, she documents the performance in the form of video and manipulates visual images to express psychological perception of experience.

In her "Red Lip" series which created from 2006, she usually show large lips along with a repeated sound of reciting a sentence. Through her interpretation of action, a personal interpretation of perception is embodied in the enlarged image of partial body.

From 2014, Kuo broadens the subject, apart from the artist herself, and turns her shot for framing her surroundings. In her "Sea Move" series, such like: Sea Move(2014) and Sea Move-Duration(2016), the massive mechanical installation which include video projecting and Lycra screen, presenting the "haptic visuality" between body action and moving image. In 2018, she move forward to create the depth of image in the issue of "haptic visuality" by presenting works Stars(2018) and Cloud Move(2018).

Kuo carries on exploring her specific language, and shows out “demonstrated, spoken and imagined move” by the body action within her video.

Sea Move
As an artist whose concerned with body action, what will I do if I take the scenery in front of me as a subject of my artwork? I want to touch it. I remembered that when I stared at the sea, an instant and nearly impulsive thought came up. I wondered whether the incoming sea waves approached me (like convex point of the video screen) or I desired to get closer to the sea. If I touch the sea waves, the touch can be regarded either as a haptical visuality or as a unrealized action; ...

Red Lip
Friendly yet strange ministrant smile, stating some unrelated general stuffs, the social connection comes from this well trained tone, we introduce, we speak, we communicate, with our true feeling hidden behind the back, fresh adjectives along with sincere grammar, wrapping with a layer of red icing, this is a demotic initiative we take, to in order to cut in for your attention, this robotic actions continue until we no longer recognize intimacy or distance.

Our Lips
I'm like a ghost, a shadow, following your words. A person and you are talking about our place. Coming out of you, I transform into me, and then us. We write a poem, marking you and me. There we are, wordless, but it's a pleasant feeling. In my video work, Red Lip 2006, an image of a red lip with a repeated sentence, “There is nothing special here but fresh vegetables” spoken in a tender but unspecific tone like a guide. It's from first-person perspective. Theref ...

You Can't Talk with Other People
Red Lip(2006) , among the “Red Lip” series, was the first attempt to make “red lips”, a subject of speech, as a medium to express and deliver messages. In You Can’t Talk with Other People, the narrative sentence came from the artist’s own true story (The criminal scammed artist’s mom on phone). The sentence was particularly crucial and decisive in the scam phone call to people who were involved. Red lip, as a medium, which delivered the message of a certain sentence, was seen as a referring ...
