Biographical Text

Charwei Tsai was born in Taiwan and presently lives and works in Taipei and Paris. Tsai utilises a variety of media in politically engaged performative practice. Her works are highly personal, portraying a sense of her Taiwanese identity and the consequent implications. Geographical, social, and spiritual concerns inform a body of work directed towards activating participation outside the confines of complacent contemplation.

Tsai graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Industrial Design and Art & Architectural History (2002) and completed the postgraduate research program at L'École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris (2010). She has had solo exhibitions in Taipei, Paris, Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing, Bogotá and Mumbai with The Guild in 2010 and her projects have been included in various international exhibitions, including the J'en Rêve at Fondation Cartier, Paris, France (2005), inaugural Singapore Biennale (2006), Thermocline of Art: New Asian Waves at the ZKM Center of Art and Media, Karlsruhe (2007), Traces du Sacré at the Centre Pompidou, Paris (2008), the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial (2009), and Taiwan Calling at the Ludwig Museum, Budapest (2010), Yokohama Triennale and the Ruhrtriennale (both in 2011). In addition to her art practice, Tsai has published an artist's journal _Lovely Daz_e twice annually since 2005.
