The Mori Art Museum is pleased to present “MAM Project 016: Ho Tzu Nyen” from Saturday, 4 February to Sunday, 27 May, 2012.

Based in Singapore, Ho Tzu Nyen presents his works throughout the world—in Hong Kong, London, Paris, Berlin, Sydney, and more—and he has gained prominence at numerous international Biennale and international film festivals. Ho participated in the 2011 Venice Biennale as a representative of Singapore, exhibiting his new work The Cloud of Unknowing (2011–12), which was the talk of the town. Ho reveals the imaginary that lies dormant as shared memory in historical fact and reality. His expression spans myriad planes, working mainly with video in installations, theatre, participatory projects, improvisational collaboration with musicians, and more. Ho has recently been exploring the relationship between image and sound in particular, and by exhibiting The Cloud of Unknowing anew as a four channel video sound installation at this first solo exhibition in Japan, he aims to have the audience experience changes of space in the story caused by synergies of the video and sound. His Bohemian Rhapsody Project (2006), and Newton (2009) are also exhibited. His poetic and theatrical world presents the lessons and philosophy comprised by history and legends, and it offers the opportunity to consider what reality is.
