Ho Tzu Nyen
Born in 1976, Ho Tzu Nyen is a visual artist from Singapore. His installations, videos as well as stage works are dramatised by the use of lighting and music and always contain a plethora of historical references, in particular in connection with the Southeast Asian region. At their core, his works pose a physical and emotional challenge to viewers to engage in a confrontation of what we do, and do not, know. Ho Tzu Nyen’s oeuvre has been widely exhibited with solo shows at leading institutions, such as the Hamburg Kunstverein, Shanghai Ming Contemporary Art Museum, TPAM Yokohama, Asia Art Archive in Hong Kong, Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Mori Art Museum in Tokyo or Artspace Sydney. In 2011, Ho Tze Nyen represented Singapore at the Venice Biennale. Moreover, he has participated in international film festivals. From 2015 to 2016, he was artist-in-residence at DAAD (Berlin) and at Asia Art Archive in Hong Kong for the four previous years.
