Museum of Impossible Forms is delighted to collaborate with Drifts Festival and present the The Critical Dictionary of Southeast Asia (CDOSEA), an ongoing meta project by Ho Tzu Nyen. 

Ho Tzu Nyen makes films, installations, and performances that begin as engagements with historical and theoretical texts. His recent works are populated by metamorphic figures such as the weretiger (One or Several Tigers, 2017) and the triple agent (The Nameless, 2015), under the rubric of The Critical Dictionary of Southeast Asia, an ongoing meta project. One-person exhibitions of his work have been held at the Toyota Municipal Museum of Art (2021), the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media [YCAM] (2021), and the Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art (Oldenburg, 2019). He represented the Singapore Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale (2011). Recent group exhibitions include the 13th Gwangju Biennale (2021), Aichi Triennale (2019) and 2 or 3 Tigers at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin (2017). Together with Taiwanese artist Hsu Chia-Wei, he also co-curated The Strangers from Beyond the Mountain and the Sea, the 7th Asian Art Biennial (2019) at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts.

The exhibition is open to the public from 02–24 SEP on Thu, Fri, Sat between 16:00–19:00. 
Warmly welcome!
