The Bohemian Rhapsody Project by Ho Tzu Nyen

On the occasion of Ho Tzu Nyen being nominated for the transmediale Award with his work Newton this special screening programme presents three additional works by this versatile artist from Singapore.

We are delighted to present a special screening featuring three selected works by Ho Tzu Nyen on the occasion of his video installation Newton being nominated for this year's transmediale Award. Ho Tzu Nyen is a performance artist, writer and filmmaker working with moving image for installations and cinema productions alike. Similar versatility is evident in his formal approach where one film hardly resembles another, as if he invents a unique language for each new subject. His debut film Utama – Every Name In History Is I tells a foundation history of his home country, Singapore, and is as experimental as it is speculative. The Bohemian Rhapsody Project is a trial in the style of a music video to a song by Queen, while the suggestive piece Earth consists of a tableau vivant referencing classical European paintings in an apocalyptic setting.


Ho Tzu Nyen will be attending the screening and will be available for a subsequent discussion of his work.
