BIOGRAPHY

Charwei Tsai was born in Taipei (1980) and currently lives and works in Taipei and Saigon. Tsai graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in Industrial Design and Art & Architectural History (2002) and the postgraduate research program at L’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris (2010).

Highly personal yet universal concerns spur Tsai’s multi‐medium 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.

Tsai has had solo exhibitions internationally, and has participated in exhibitions and biennials including Biennale of Sydney and Sharjah Calligraphy Biennale, (2016), Simple Shapes at Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2015) and Centre Pompidou-Metz, France (2014); Sharjah Biennial (2013), Phantoms of Asia at Asian Art Museum of San Francisco (2012), Yokohama Triennial (2011), 6th Asia Pacific Triennial (2009), Traces of the Sacred, Centre Pompidou, Paris (2008), Thermocline of Art: New Asian Waves at ZKM Center of Art and Media, Karlsruhe (2007), and the inaugural Singapore Biennale (2006). Tsai’s works are in public and private collections including those held at the Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane, Mori Art Museum, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, Yokohama Museum of Art, FRAC Lorraine and Kadist Foundation.

Tsai has also published a curatorial journal titled Lovely Daze twice a year since 2005. The complete sets of Lovely Daze are in the library collections of Tate Modern, London, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Pompidou Center, Paris, and Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona.

PORTFOLIO
STATEMENT

Over the last nine years of my practice as an artist, people often ask me if I am a devoted religious artist or simply in love with the aesthetics of writing texts. Although I have always almost single-mindedly tried to explore one theme that is the Buddhist concept of emptiness, I never thought of myself as a religious artist. I always considered emptiness as a philosophical concept. In my daily life I am still trying to grasp this concept.

Form is emptiness, emptiness is form
Emptiness is not separate from form,
Form is not separate from emptiness.

— Excerpt from the Heart Sutra

My work is a meditation on these words. When I write repeatedly on objects, it is my own internal contemplative process that I consider as my practice. My aim was never to illustrate or produce a physical work that explains to others the concept of emptiness. My own understanding of the concept is still rudimentary and I am constantly learning.
