Pleased to share Ho Tzu Nyen’s solo exhibition, ‘The Critical Dictionary of Southeast Asia – Vol. 3: N for Names’ at Kunstverein in Hamburg. The project is in cooperation with Kunstverein in Hamburg and the International Summer Festival Kampnagel. Ho Tzu Nyen is developing a large installation with further works from the encyclopedic series, positioning ‘The Nameless’ – which deals with the triple-agent Lai Teck – against his work ‘The Name’ about the mysterious writer Gene Z. Hanrahan, and framing both with a new work based on his virtual dictionary. Additionally, this installation is associated with the stage play ‘The Mysterious Lai Teck’, a visually stunning agent story about politics and betrayal in post-colonial Malaysia, which finds its world premiere at Kampnagel.
