Ho Tzu Nyen

Singaporean artist Ho Tzu Nyen's exhibition at the Toyota Municipal Museum of Art is themed around yokai from Japanese folklore. Parading through the night, these supernatural, often shapeshifting entities can be understood as an eruption of the unconscious into the space of everyday life. The artist uses cartoon-like illustrations to depict his taxonomy of monsters. Among the peculiar and sometimes humorous yokai are also a number of historical Japanese persons involved in the occupation of the Malay Peninsula during World War II. This catalogue functions as an introduction to each of the yokai and a guide to the various and complex elements hidden within the exhibition.
