보헤미안 랩소리 프로젝트
The Bohemian Rhapsody Project is a film set in the Supreme Court of Singapore that takes its spoken dialogue entirely from the lyrics of the song. This film-within-a-film aspect and the theatricality of the piece along with the adoption of a pop-culture framework allude to the theatrical nature of the courtroom as it is presented in the media and popular culture.
Ho Tzu Nyen makes films, videos and theatrical performances. Solo exhibitions of his work include “MAM Project #16” at the Mori Art Museum (2012), the Singapore Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2011) and “Earth” at Artspace, Sydney (2011). His recent group exhibitions include “Homeworks 6” in Beirut (2013), Auckland Triennial (2013) and “No Country” at the Guggenheim Museum in New York (2013).
