I think you are looking for something like X11vnc.

You need some kind of client server mechanism since the desktop is remote.
One way to set it up is VNC-server on the target machine and VNC viewer on the client machine.

Here are the instructions

You can ssh -y user@remote and then when you execute a graphical command it will be sent through the X11 tunnel (-y -x) to the X server from which you ssh.

You can certainly use
ssh -Y user@remoteHost

This would not show you the remote desktop to you, however
