In my recent trip to Sydney I was lucky enough to catch Ho Tzu Nyen’s exhibition at Artspace.
I found his work really inspiring, particularly his video piece Earth (2009/2010) (see still)
The lighting for this work was very theatrical, and had the ability to change the viewers perception or focus within the space wonderfully. What really captivated me about this work and his one of the other videos exhibited in the show ZARATHUSTRA: A FILM FOR EVERYONE AND NO-ONE (2009/2010) was the way the films worked the darkness; creating strange morphing objects within the shadows.
If you’re in Sydney and haven’t’ already, go check this out, its an absolute treat. It’s on at Artspace until the 20 Feb.
