Working primarily in film, video and performance, Ho Tzu Nyen has developed recent works into environmental multimedia installations. He appropriates the structures of epic myths to invoke their grandeur and reveal the narratives as fiction- and reality-machines.

Guggenheim Museum, New York (2013); Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2012); Singapore Pavilion, 54th Venice Biennale (2011); Artspace, Sydney (2011); 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Brisbane (2009) and 26th Sao Paulo Biennale (2004).
Ho was the recipient of the Grand Prize of the Asia Pacific Breweries Foundation Signature Art Prize (2015) and a DAAD scholarship in Berlin (2014–2015). He earned a BA in creative arts from Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne (2001) and an MA in Southeast Asian studies from the National University of Singapore (2007).
