Born in 1980 in Taipei, Taiwan. TSAI Charwei graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in industrial design and art & architectural history (2002), and the postgraduate research program La Seine at L’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris (2010). Highly personal yet universal concerns spur TSAI’s multi-media practice. Geographical, social, and spiritual motifs inform a body of work, which encourages viewer participation outside the confines of complacent contemplation. Preoccupied with the human/nature relationship, TSAI meditates on the complexities among cultural beliefs, spirituality, and transience. In addition to her art practice, TSAI publishes, designs and edits Lovely Daze, a curatorial journal published twice a year since 2005. TSAI has had solo exhibitions and projects internationally, including: TSAI Charwei: Bulaubulau Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, Manchester, U.K. (2018); Water Moon, Institute of Contemporary Art, Villeurbanne/Rhône-Alpes, France, and Hear Her Singing, a project commissioned by Hayward Gallery at Southbank Centre, London, U.K. (both in 2017); A Dedication to the Sea, curated by Eugene Tan at Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, Singapore (2012); and Water, Earth and Air, curated by Suhanya Raffel at Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, Sydney, Australia (2009). She has participated in group exhibitions and biennials, including Biennale Jogja 2019; Minimalism: Space, Light, Object, Art & Science Museum in collaboration with National Gallery Singapore; Scared Spaces, Rubin Museum of Art, New York, U.S. (both in 2018); Biennale of Sydney, Australia (2016); Simple Shapes, Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan (2015), and Centre Pompidou-Metz, Paris, France (2014); Sharjah Biennial (2013); Yokohama Triennial (2011); 6th Asia Pacific Triennial (2009); Traces of the Sacred, Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (2008); Thermocline of Art: New Asian Waves, ZKM Center of Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany (2007); and the inaugural Singapore Biennale (2006).
