ジャックフルーツを食べるとき、珍味として楽しまれていることを知らずに芯の部分を捨ててしまう人が多い。BOHOLOという名前は、中国語で「ジャックフルーツの芯」を表す言葉を、広東語読みでローマ字表記したものである。2019年にBUBU（Liu Jiawen）とCAT（Huang Wanshan）によって発足し、のちにZhu Jianlin、Li Zhiyong、Fong Waikingがフルタイムメンバーとして加わった。

When eating jackfruit, people often throw away its center, not knowing that it can also be enjoyed as its own special delicacy. The name BOLOHO is a Cantonese romanization of the Chinese word for “jackfruit core,” which initiated by BUBU(Liu Jiawen) and CAT(Huang Wanshan) in 2019, with Zhu Jianlin, Li Zhiyong and Fong Waiking joining later as full members. At the beginning, BOLOHO was more like a business venture between BUBU and CAT, two family women working away from home, and a place to get some fresh air where we could sort out our lives and work. After more than three years, the project has gradually developed into a “company” platform based on the principles of self-discipline, equality and mutual-aid, providing work for collaborators as well as friends like us who cannot make a living from art alone. BOLOHO also allows us to better understand how to live and work communally when taking jobs together, and provides the opportunity to think about, discern and solve some of the real issues that we are all faced with.
