Ho Tzu Nyen
Ho Tzu Nyen is an artist and a writer based in Singapore. He graduated from Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne in 2001, with a Dean's Award for Academic Excellence, and is currently an Associate Artist with The Substation, Singapore's pioneer independent artspace (www.substation.org).
As an artist, Ho is interested in the possibility of producing a work of art that does not die with the end of its exhibition-life, but which can be disseminated in the economical medium of talks is something he is currently interested in. His first solo exhibition in Singapore, Utama Every Name in History is I, was made up of a film, a set of 20 paintings, an installation and a research project about the origins of Singapore. Subsequently, this exhibition has been repackaged into a presentation. This project was shown at the 26th Sao Paulo Biennale and is currently being performed at the ICA London as part of the Insomnia series.
As a writer, Ho frequently writes on art and cinema. Some of his writings can be found in the exhibition catalogues 'Cinepolitans Film, Art and the City' and 'Painting as Process Re-evaluating Painting', as well as in the magazines, Art Asia Pacific (US), Broadsheet (Australia), REALTIME (Australia), Singapore Architect, ISH and Vehicle. He has recently completed two essays on Singaporean cinema that will be published in the near future. A Research Scholar at the National University of Singapore, Southeast Asian Studies Programme, he is writing a dissertation on the anxieties of influence in postwar Singaporean art history.
