His 2006 video, "The Bohemian Rhapsody Project" received a Special Mention at the 5th Vienna Independent Short Film Festival and the Grand Jury Prize at the 4th Pris de Courts International Short Film Festival in Paris. As a visual artist, Tzu Nyen has presented his works at numerous significant international exhibitions such as the 26th Sao Paulo Biennale (2004), the 3rd Fukuoka Asian Art Triennale (2005) and the 1st Singapore Biennale (2006). In 2008, he conceptualised, wrote and co-directed "The King Lear Project", a co-commission by the KunstenFestivaldesArts in Brussels and The Singapore Arts Festival.
