Pythagoras draws together some of Ho Tzu Nyen's recent works that interweave his interests in music, mathematics, philosophy and poetry into an existential voyage, distilling these disciplines of thought into some of the most fundamental questions about the nature and the origination of being. Turned into a stunning metaphor of art as a theatrical experience, the mix media installation presents spectral vignettes of Ho's earlier works comprising of Milton (2013), an adaptation of his 2009 work Earth, Newton (2009), Gould (2013) and Pythagoras (2013), and can be seen an cinematic interplay of sound and image, and of light and darkness, as well as a homage to the renowned philosopher (Pythagoras of Samos, c. 570 BC - c. 495 BC), poet (John Milton, 1608 - 1674), pianist (Glenn Herbert Gould, 1932 - 1982) and physicist (Sir Isaac Newton, 1672 - 1727).Known for his practice that deals with film, video and performance, Ho represented Singapore at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011. Some of his other important presentations include the MAM Project #16 at the Mori Art Museum (2012), Artspace, Sydney (2011), and participation in group shows such as “No Country” at the Guggenheim Museum in New York (2013), 5th Auckland Triennial in New Zealand (2013), Asia Pacific Triennial, Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane (2009); No Soul for Sale, Tate Modern, London (2010 and Thermocline of Art: New Asian Waves, ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe (2007).
