Delighted to share that Ho Tzu Nyen is participating in the 13th edition of Gwangju Biennale, presenting a newly commissioned piece, ‘The 49th Hexagram’ (2020).
In this work, the artist considers the significance of the Democratic Movement in Gwangju against the backdrop of the numerous uprisings that recurred throughout the last century of Korean history. Using film stills from the many South Korean movies that depicted these uprisings, Ho assembled a set of storyboards— a sequence of illustrations for the purpose of previsualizing an animation film.
